Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Action of 1973, as amended, is designed to eliminate discrimination based on disability in any program or activity receiving federal financial assistance. This act requires that no qualified student who demonstrates (1) a physical or mental impairment, (2) that substantially limits, (3) one or more major life activities, (i.e. self-care, performing manual tasks, walking, seeing, hearing, speaking, breathing, working, learning, eating, sleeping, standing, lifting, bending, reading, concentrating, thinking, operation of a major bodily function, and communicating) shall be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefit of, or be subject to discrimination in any program or activity offered by Baldwin County School District (the "District").
Each student who is determined to have a disability under Section 504 has the right to an appropriate education to meet his or her individual educational needs as adequately as the needs of non-disabled students.
While services provided to qualified students are not required to produce identical results or levels of achievement with nondisabled peers, services must be designed to offer an equal opportunity to gain the same benefit within the least restrictive environment with non-disabled peers to the maximum extent appropriate.
If it is determined that a student is eligible for special education, special educational services will be provided under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) through an Individualized Education Plan (IEP).
