Students will graduate prepared and motivated to succeed in their choice of career and higher education and to contribute to the common good.
Students who are handicapped within the meaning of Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, must be identified, evaluated, and provided with the required appropriate education.
Students who, because of handicap, need or are believed to need accommodations or related services, are addressed under this policy. Under this policy, a handicapped student is one who:
- Has a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities, including learning
- Has a record of such impairment
- Is regarded as having such an impairment
Students may be handicapped under Section 504 of this policy even though they do not require services pursuant to the California Special Education Programs Act.
Please contact your school's Psychologist or Administrator for more information regarding establishing a 504 plan.
