School 504 Accommodations
DoDEA Nondiscrimination and 504 Accommodations on the Basis of Disability in DoDEA Programs and Activities.
Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 is a civil rights statute that prohibits discrimination against individuals with disabilities.
The law requires school districts with students with disabilities to be provided reasonable accommodations to allow access to educational programs and associated activities to the same extent as students without disabilities.
A person is considered disabled and may be eligible to be considered for 504 Accommodations if he/she:
- Has a physical or mental impairment which substantially limits one or more major life activities,
- Has a record of such impairment, or
- Is regarded as having such impairment.
For inquiries about possible eligibility, please contact your school’s 504 Accommodation Team Leaders or school principal to set up a meeting.
