504 Plans

Department Page: 

The 504 Plan is a plan developed to ensure that a child who has a disability/medical need identified under the law receives accommodations that will ensure their academic success and access to the learning environment.

504 plans are for Pre-K–12 school students with disabilities. Section 504 defines “disability” in very broad terms. That’s why children who aren’t eligible for an IEP may qualify for a 504 plan. Section 504 defines a person with a disability as someone who:

  • Has a physical or mental impairment that “substantially” limits one or more major life activity (such as reading or concentrating).
  • Has a record of the impairment.
  • Is regarded as having an impairment, or a significant difficulty that isn’t temporary. For example, a broken leg isn’t an impairment, but a chronic condition, like a food allergy, might be.

When doing an evaluation for a 504 plan, the school considers information from several sources, including:

  • Documentation of the child’s disability (such as a doctor’s diagnosis)
  • Evaluation results (if the school recently evaluated the child for an IEP)
  • Observations by the student’s parents and teachers
  • Academic record
  • Independent evaluations (if available)

Section 504 requires evaluation procedures that prevent students from being misclassified, incorrectly labeled as having a disability or incorrectly placed.
