Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 is a federal statute (anti-discrimination law), which protects the rights of individuals with disabilities to equal opportunity in programs and activities which receive federal funds. Section 504 is intended to level the playing field for individuals with disabilities so, for example, students can fully participate in school. The Section 504 regulation requires a school district to provide a “free and appropriate public education (FAPE) to each qualified stu-dent with a disability who is in the school district, regardless of the nature or severity of the disability.
