Section 504 and Students with Disabilities
OFFICE OF SUPERINTENDENT OF PUBLIC INSTRUCTION Equity and Civil Rights Office.

Every student with a disability is protected from discrimination under federal law— Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973. This law prohibits discrimination based on disability in any program or activity that receives funding from the federal government. All Washington state public schools must comply with this federal law. Section 504 requires public schools to provide a "free appropriate public education" (FAPE) to every student with a disability—regardless of the nature or severity of the disability. Under Section 504, schools must provide students with disabilities the accommodations, aids, and services they need to access and benefit from education equally with their peers

If you need for information regarding the 504 process, please contact the Special Services Office...
