Section 504 services
The Rehabilitation Act of 1973, reauthorized in 2008, commonly referred to as “Section 504,” is a non-discrimination statute enacted by the United States Congress. The purpose of the Act is to prohibit discrimination and to ensure that students with disabilities have educational opportunities and benefits equal to those provided to other students. An eligible student under Section 504 is a student who has a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits them in a major life activity such as learning, self-care, walking, seeing, hearing, speaking, reading, concentrating, breathing, working and performing manual tasks. See the school counselor or campus 504 Coordinator for more information about services for qualifying students.
Students with Dyslexia and Related Disorders Students with dyslexia have difficulty with reading, writing and/or spelling. Each campus has a teacher (the dyslexia Designee) knowledgeable about dyslexia and Dyslexia intervention. This person is trained to reevaluate, instruct, and monitor eligible students. Schools serve students with dyslexia or related disorders in a variety of ways determined by a campus 504 committee. Services may include specialized instruction, classroom accommodations, and assistive technology. See the school counselor or campus 504 Coordinator for more information about services for qualifying students.
