Section 504

Section 504 is a civil rights law that prohibits discrimination against individuals on the basis of disabling conditions. School-age children identified for services under Section 504 may receive regular or special education and related accommodations and modifications to ensure equal access to education.

These forms on this page were developed in 2014 by Dr. Catherine Conrado, former Sonoma County SELPA Director, and Carl Corbin, School and College Legal Services General Counsel, to give school districts and charter schools a complete set of documents that may be adopted to fulfill the legal obligations under Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973.

The forms are available as fillable PDFs and in Word formatting so that users can customize the forms for their own use. The forms may be used by any school district or charter school that wishes to adopt and personalize them. Users may save and use the forms as hard copy or electronic documents in the required Section 504 documentation process. Districts and independent charter schools should insert the name, title, and contact information of their appointed Section 504 coordinator on parent rights documents, as required by law.

These forms are provided as a courtesy and their use is voluntary. The forms presume that the users have had the proper training in the compliant administration of Section 504 requirements. School districts have no obligation to use these forms.
