Section 504

Section 504 is a federal law designed to protect the rights of individuals with disabilities in programs and activities that receive federal funds from the US Department of Education. The Elkhorn Area School District provides free and appropriate education to each student identified with a disability and does not discriminate against any student having a record of a disability or who otherwise is regarded as having a disability.

The purpose of a 504 is to remove barriers to learning by providing reasonable accommodations in a general education classroom for students who have a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits a major life activity. The 504 plan identifies accommodations which do not lower the expectation for what a child learns, but changes how the child learns.
