Belgrade School District is committed to providing high-quality education to all students, regardless of disability or impairment. Students with a disability or impairment may qualify for additional educational support under Section 504 of the Americans with Disabilities Act. Section 504 is a provision outlined by federal statute that promotes equitable access to education, regardless of a child's disability or health impairment.
Section 504 federal statute states that:
"No otherwise qualified individual with a disability shall solely by reason of her or his disability, be excluded from the participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any other program or activity receiving federal financial assistance."
The purpose of the Section 504 Rehabilitation Act of 1973 is to prohibit discrimination and to assure that disabled students are provided equal benefits and educational opportunities as non disabled students.
