INFORMATION REGARDING SECTION 504 OF THE REHABILITATION ACT OF 1973

Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 is to prevent discrimination on the basis of disability in any program receiving federal financial assistance.  An eligible student under 504 is a student who has a mental or physical impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities. 

In order to fulfill its obligation under Section 504, the Warren County RIII School District recognizes a responsibility to avoid discrimination in policies and practices regarding its personnel and students.  No discrimination against any person solely due to his/her disability will knowingly be permitted in any of the programs and practices in the school district.

The school district has specific responsibilities under the Act, which include the responsibility to identify, evaluate, and if the child is determined to be eligible under Section 504, to afford access to appropriate educational services.

If the parent or guardian disagrees with the determination made by the professional staff of the school district, he/she has a right to a hearing with an impartial hearing officer.

The Family Educational rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) also specifies rights related to educational records.  The Act gives the parent or guardian the right to:

  1. inspect and review his/her child’s educational records;

  2. make copies of these records;
  3. receive a list of all individuals having access to those records;
  4. ask for an explanation of any item in the records;
  5. ask for an amendment to any report on the grounds that it is inaccurate, misleading, or violates the child’s rights; and
  6. a hearing on the issue if the school refuses to make the amendment.
