Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973
To be protected under Section 504, a student must be determined to: (1) have a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities; or (2) have a record of such an impairment; or (3) be regarded as having such an impairment. Section 504 requires that school districts provide free appropriate public education (FAPE) to qualified students in their jurisdictions who have a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities. If you have questions about whether your child qualifies for a disability under Section 504, please contact your child's school and ask to speak with the 504 Coordinator. For additional questions, you may contact Kristin Beck, Director of Wellness, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
