Section 504

What is a 504 Plan?

A 504 Plan is developed to ensure that students with disabilities have access to the same education as their non-disabled peers. It does not provide individualized instruction; however, it does provide students with various accommodations so they are able to succeed in the regular classroom.

Who is eligible for a 504 Plan?

Students with any disability may be eligible for a 504 plan, as long as the disability substantially limits one or major life activities (e.g., learning). A 504 plan has a wider range of eligibility than an IEP, which makes a 504 a good option for students who don't qualify for special education services under IEP requirements.

How do I get a 504 evaluation for my student?

504 plans often don't require extensive evaluations, but there are procedures to follow. Refer to the resources below for more information.
