Section 504 Action Plan

The Richland School District will distribute information, including the procedural safeguards notice, to all parents annually regarding parent rights under Section 504.Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, commonly called “Section 504,” is a federal law that protects students from discrimination based on disability. Section 504 assures students with disabilities have educational opportunities and benefits equal to those provided to students without disabilities. To be eligible, a student must have a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activity.

Plan to Ensure That Parental Consent is Provided

Counselors will receive training in September of each year regarding Section 504 including processes, procedures and communication requirements ensuring that the procedural safeguards notice is provided to parents when any actions are  taken regarding identification, evaluation or placement under Section 504.

All documentation regarding Section 504 meetings, eligibility decisions, parental notifications and consent forms and plans for accommodations where eligibility exists will be forwarded to the office of the 504 compliance officer.

Brochures will be distributed annually to each site and in multiple languages.
