Section 504 as related to Healthcare Plan
Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 (Section 504) is a Federal civil rights law that is designed to eliminate disability discrimination in programs and activities that receive Federal funds. Since all public school districts receive Federal funds, all public school districts must comply with Section 504.
When a student requires specific health services at school to stay safe and healthy, a Healthcare Plan or Action Plan may be written. Because of changes that broadened the coverage of Section 504, children with Healthcare Plans may qualify for disability protections under Section 504. Please see the Notice of Procedural Safeguards for information about the legal protections provided by law under Section 504 by clicking here.
Students on Healthcare Plans will be periodically reviewed in order to identify whether additional supports or services are necessary.
