    Section 504 
    The district will provide a free appropriate public education to students with disabilities found eligible within the provision of Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973. The district will educate students with disabilities with non-disabled students to the maximum extent appropriate. Instruction will be designed and provided through reasonable accommodations, aids, and services to meet the needs of students with disabilities as equally effective as the needs of students without disabilities. Section 504 also ensures that students with disabilities will be afforded protection from discrimination that may occur as a result of their disability.
