Section 504 Services
Section 504 Services are designed to provide a system of identifying eligible students with disabilities as defined under Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act and its subsequent amendments. Once identified, these students are ensured access to a Free and Appropriate Public Education (FAPE) by providing accommodations that allow equal access to the curriculum in the general education setting. The statute is intended to prevent intentional or unintentional discrimination against persons with disabilities, persons who are believed to have disabilities, or family members of persons with disabilities.
Lake Travis ISD strives to meet the needs of all students. 504 Services are designed to provide a system of identifying eligible children with disabilities as defined under Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended (2008), enabling Lake Travis ISD to ensure that all of the civil rights of these children are protected and receive appropriate services to ensure access to a Free and Appropriate Public Education (FAPE).
Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended (2008) and further clarified in 2010, prohibits discrimination against persons with disabilities in all programs and activities that receive federal financial assistance. An eligible student is one who:
has a physical or mental impairment which substantially limits one or more major life activities;
- has a record or history of such impairment;
- is regarded as having such an impairment.
While many students who receive 504 status and services are Dyslexic or have Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), services are not limited to only these areas of disability. Any student with a disability that substantially limits one or more life activities may be considered for 504 services.
