In 1973, Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act was enacted by Congress while ensures civil rights protections to individuals with disabilities. Recent court rulings and Office of Civil Rights guidance documents indicate that students who have individual health plans or have been diagnosed with diseases such as diabetes, Crohn’s disease, cystic fibrosis, irritable bowel syndrome, epilepsy, etc. may qualify for Section 504 protections.
If you would like your child to be evaluated for possible Section 504 eligibility, please contact Laurie Gordon, 409-883-6970 or Kelly Meadows, RN, (409) 886-4245 ext 5.
