Notice of Parents and Student Rights

(Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973)

The following is a description of the rights granted by Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 for students with disabilities.

Please keep this explanation for future reference.

  • Receive notice with respect to identification, evaluations or placement of your student;
  • Have your student receive a free and appropriate public education. This includes the right to be educated with nondisabled students to the maximum extent appropriate. It also includes the right to have the school district make reasonable accommodations to allow your student an equal opportunity to participate in school and school-sponsored activities.
  • Have your student educated in facilities and receive services comparable to those provided to nondisabled students;
  • Have evaluations, educational, and placement decisions made based upon a variety of information sources, and by persons who know the student, the evaluation data, and placement options;
