WHAT IS SECTION 504?
Section 504 is the part of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 that applies to individuals with disabilities. It is a civil rights act that protects the civil rights of persons with disabilities. Section 504 is a nondiscrimination statute, prohibiting discrimination based solely on disability.
Section 504 requires that no person with a disability can be excluded from or denied benefits of any program receiving federal financial assistance; this includes education.
Section 504 and special education (IDEA) are two service options for children with disabilities. Our school coordinator is Kathleen Wagner. If you have any questions, please contact her at (435) 628-2462 ex: 201.
