St. Louis Section 504 Law Practice
Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 is a federal statute that provides certain rights to individuals with disabilities. Section 504 prohibits all recipients of federal funding from discriminating on the basis of a person’s disability. This includes all public schools from early childhood programs through college-level institutions. Section 504 also applies to any private school or university that receives federal funding.
Section 504 applies to any student with a disability. Some students with disabilities require a 504 Plan to accommodate their disability. A 504 Plan can include special education and related services and can outline specific accommodations required by the student. Sometimes schools improperly refuse to provide a student with a disability with a 504 Plan, or, a student may have a 504 Plan in place that the school fails follow appropriately.
