Students who are unable to participate in school programs or activities because of a disability that affects one or more of their major life activities (such as caring for oneself, performing manual tasks, walking, seeing, hearing, speaking, breathing, and learning, etc.) may be eligible for accommodations through a Section 504 plan. Inquiries about 504 plans should be directed to:
