A 504 Plan can be developed and implemented to ensure that a child (identified under Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973) receives accommodations in the school setting. To qualify for a 504 Plan, a child must have a mental or physical impairment/disability that affects a major life function (e.g. hearing, breathing, learning, etc.). The 504 team generally consists of the parent(s)/guardian(s) of the student, teachers, and the 504 officer. The building Principal is designated as the 504 officer.
