Section 504 Program

Section 504 is a civil rights law that prohibits discrimination against individuals with disabilities. Section 504 ensures that a child with a disability has equal access to an education and the child may receive appropriate accommodations/modifications.

Section 504 Eligibility

A child is eligible for services under Section 504 if he/she has a record of having, or is regarded as having, a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities, such as: caring for oneself, hearing, working, seeing, performing manual tasks, breathing, walking, speaking or learning.

Assessment and identification of students qualifying under § 504 is completed at the child’s school by the campus § 504 Committee.  Information from a variety of sources is considered, including aptitude and achievement tests, teacher recommendation, physical condition, social and cultural background, adaptive anecdotal reports, and TAKS scores.

Section 504 Services

Students who qualify as a child with a disability under § 504 are served on their home campus according to a plan developed by the campus § 504 committee. Services may include modification in the classroom, access to a Content Mastery Lab, a health plan, or other appropriate accommodations.
