Event Calendar

The Lawrence Public Schools are committed to ensuring Section 504 of the 1973 Rehabilitation Act is met. Section 504 was the first disability civil rights law to be enacted in the United States. It prohibits discrimination against people with disabilities in programs that receive federal financial assistance, and set the stage for enactment of the Americans with Disabilities Act.

Some children with disabilities who are not eligible for special education programs and related services under the IDEA may be eligible for services under Section 504. Your school district must also make sure that its programs are physically accessible to children with disabilities. 

Section 504 provides legal rights for children with disabilities and their parents. Many states and local school districts also offer mediation services which may be helpful in settling disagreements about whether your child is eligible for services and the kind of services your child should get. Your school system should have a specific person on staff who knows about Section 504 and who can help you with your questions and concerns. You may also want to contact the U.S. Department of Education, Office for Civil Rights' (OCR) office that services your state.
