Do you know about ADA Section 504?
Students who have physical or mental impairments which substantially limit their ability to participate in school-based educational programs are entitled to rights under Section 504 of the American Disabilities Act. The purpose of Section 504 is to prohibit discrimination and to assure that disabled students have educational opportunities and benefits equal to those provided to no-disabled students. Ssome examples of these medical impairments are asthma, sickle cell, diabetes, juvenile arthritis, heart disease attention deficit disorder, cerebral palsy, muscular dystrophy, and students with temporary disabilities. Please contact Mrs. T. Ward if you need assistance setting up or maintaining a 504 for your student.
