Learn More About Section 504

Special needs or special education law has a singular and specific purpose.  That purpose is to ensure that children with disabilities receive a Free and Appropriate Public Education (FAPE).  This is accomplished through specific procedural requirements and substantive accommodations that the school must provide.  The school’s failure to do so requires that parents, or guardians, voice opposition and concern to the school and school district.
