Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act is a federal civil rights law that prohibits discrimination against qualified individuals with disabilities and guarantees them a free and public education (FAPE). Students with a disability are to be provided the same opportunity to benefit from education programs, services and activities as their nondisabled peers. This statute is regarding equal access to educational opportunities for students with medical or mental health impairments.

Section 504 not only prohibits discrimination in providing educational services, but also prohibits discrimination in the form of harassment because of the disability and in the form of retaliation, intimidation, coercion or threats for reporting discrimination based on an individual’s disability.

Section 504 provides accommodations within the general education setting. (It does not provide specialized educational services.)
