Section 504 Education Policy

Section 504 Education Policy Statement of Nondiscrimination on the Basis of Disability

It is the policy of Bear Grass Charter School to provide a free and appropriate public education to each student with a disability within its jurisdiction, regardless of the nature of severity of the disability.

It is the intent of the district to ensure that students who are disabled within the definition of Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 are identified, assessed, and provided with appropriate educational services.

Under this policy, a student with a disability is one who (a) has a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities, (b) has a record of such impairment, or (c) is regarded as having such an impairment.  Students may be disabled under Section 504 even though they do not require services pursuant to the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA).  Due process rights of students with disabilities and their parents under Section 504 will be enforced.
