One of the principal purposes of Section 504 is to ensure that students with disabilities are not denied access to educational facilities, programs, and opportunities on the basis of their disability.
For a student to have a disability which may be protected under the Section 504 law, he or she must:
(1) have a mental or physical impairment, (2) which substantially limits, (3) one or more major life activities. For a student to be considered an "eligible student" under Section 504, all three criteria must be fulfilled.
If you feel your child may need assistance with either physical or health related accommodations, please contact the building principal or counselor for additional information.
If you have questions about Section 504, please contact Christy Wierenga - District 504 Coordinator at 616-878-6633.
