Section 504

Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 is a Federal law that focuses on non-discrimination.  The law states, "No otherwise qualified individual with a disability in the United State, as defined in section 706(8) of this title, shall, solely by reason of her or his handicap, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance or under any program or activity conducted by any Executive agency or the United States Postal Service..." - 29 U.S.C., 794(a)(1973)."

As it applies to the public schools, "the language broadly prohibits the denial of public education participation, or enjoyment of the benefits offered by public school programs because of a child's disability.  To encourage compliance, Congress did not create an additional source of federal funding, but instead, conditioned future receipt of federal funds on the district's compliance with the new requirements."  (Richards, Lindsay, & Martin, L.L.P., Fall 2006.)

CESD §504 Compliance System, November 20, 2014

Schools are required to locate, identify and evaluate all children with disabilities from birth through age 21. The Child Find mandate applies to all children who reside within a State, including children who attend private schools and public schools, highly mobile children, migrant children, homeless children, and children who are wards of the state. (20 U.S.C. 1412(a)(3))

This includes all children who are suspected of having a disability, including children who receive passing grades and are "advancing from grade to grade." (34 CFR 300.111(c)) The law does not require children to be "labeled" or classified by their disability. (20 U.S.C. 1412(a)(3)(B); 34 CFR 300.111(d)).
