Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act
Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 prohibits discrimination against persons with a disability in any program receiving federal financial assistance. In order to fulfill obligations under Section 504, the Humboldt Community School District has the responsibility to avoid discrimination in policies and practices regarding its personnel and students. No discrimination against any person with a disability should knowingly be permitted in any of the programs and practices of the school system.
The Humboldt Community School District has the responsibilities under Section 504, which include the obligations to identify, evaluate, and, if the student is determined to be eligible under Section 504, to provide access to appropriate educational services. If the parent or guardian disagrees with the determination made by the professional staff of the school district, the parent/guardian has a right to a hearing with an impartial hearing officer. If there are questions, please feel free to contact the designated principal.
