Welcome to Grant County Schools’ Section 504 Website. Section 504 is part of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 that prohibits discrimination based upon disability. Section 504 is an anti-discrimination, civil rights statute that requires the needs of students with disabilities to be met as adequately as the needs of the non-disabled are met. Any student who has a mental or physical impairment that substantially limits a child’s ability to receive an appropriate education may be considered to have “impairment” under Section 504. Please note that a physical or mental impairment does not constitute a disability for purposes of Section 504 unless its severity is such that it results in a substantial limitation of one or more major life activities.
Grant County Schools has developed procedures that are followed when identifying and serving students with Section 504 impairments which are included at this site. If you have questions or would like more information, please feel free to contact our district contacts which are listed to the right.
