504 Plans

  • 504 plans are formal plans that schools develop to give students with disabilities the supports they need. These plans prevent discrimination and protect the rights of students with disabilities in school. They’re covered under civil rights law - Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act. 

    504 plans often include accomodations. These can include changes to the environment, changes to instruction, or changes to how curriculum is presented. Accommodations don’t change what kids learn, just how they learn it. The goal is to remove barriers and give kids access to learning.
