A Section 504 (commonly referred to as a 504 Plan) is a plan designed to accommodate the unique needs of an individual with a disability, as required by the American with Disabilities Act (ADA). Children who have disabilities, but whose disabilities do not interfere with their ability to progress in general education are not eligible for special education services and may be entitled to a Section 504 Accommodation Plan. Depending upon the student’s individual needs, a school district may be required to provide the following: specialized instruction, modifications to the curriculum, accommodations in non-academic and extracurricular activities, adaptive equipment or assistive technology devices, an aide, assistance with health-related needs, school transportation, or other related services and accommodations.
