Additional Things a Parent Should Know About Section 504

In some ways, Section 504 is similar to IDEA (Individuals with Disabilities Act), in that it involves parent’s rights, evaluation, an individualized plan, follow-up, and re-evaluation.  However, there are very important differences:  Section 504 is a civil rights law that ensures accommodations for equal access to services, such as instruction that disabled students receive in the regular classroom; IDEA is an educational law whereas specialized instruction and related services are required to make educational gain delivered by specially trained teachers.  Section 504 and IDEA differ both in goals and extent.

 

Examples of information used to consider 504 Eligibility:

· Physician's Report

· Educational Evaluation or Assessments

· Parent Information

· Health Care Plans

· Work Samples and Achievement Data

· Attendance Reports

 

Parents or guardians will be invited to participate in all of their student's SST, Section 504, and Special Education Eligibility Determination Meetings.

 

What should you do if you have questions or concerns about your child’s academic success?

Communicate with your child’s teacher, counselor, or administrator to establish a meeting to determine problem solving strategies. Study with your child at home; pay attention to specific strengths, weaknesses, how much time is spent on homework, etc… Utilize resources like Parent Portal to monitor your student’s grades and assignments.

 

Who could I contact for additional information about Section 504?

Contact the 504 Coordinator at your child’s school.
