Mental/Physical Impairments (504)

Some students experience physical or mental impairments that can hamper their ability to access our educational program in the same way as other students. These students may or may not qualify for special education. Federal laws and rules (often referred to as 504) detail requirements for schools to use to ensure the needs of these students are met. 

Students might qualify for services under Section 504 if they have a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits a major life activity such as walking, seeing, hearing, speaking, breathing, learning or working.

Parents with concerns should contact their school to see if a 504 Plan should be created to outline services and accommodations for their child.
