Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 (“Section 504”) and the Americans with Disabilities Act (“ADA”) prohibit discrimination against individuals with disabilities in any program receiving federal financial assistance. The Jefferson County Public School District is committed to ensuring compliance with Section 504 and the ADA. Accordingly, no discrimination against any persons with a disability shall knowingly be permitted in any program or practice in the District. The District further acknowledges that it has the responsibility to provide accommodations, adjustments, modifications, and necessary services to eligible students and other individuals with disabilities.
If you believe that your student with a disability has been denied an accommodation or service as a result of inappropriate weighing of available resources or if you have any questions or concerns related to Section 504 or the provision of appropriate services for your student with a disability, please do not hesitate to contact your student’s building principal.
