A student can be referred for a Section 504 evaluation by the parent or school personnel. All parent requests and school referrals for Section 504 support are facilitated by the campus Intervention Assistance Teams (IAT). To be eligible under Section 504 a student must be determined to:
- Have a physical or mental impairment.
- The physical or mental impairment must limit one or more major life activities.
- The impact of the physical or mental impairment must be substantial.
Once a student is determined eligible for Section 504, accommodations are provided to mitigate the student’s impairment so that the student can participate in academic and extra-curricular activities.
