Protected Handicapped Students - 504 Evaluations and Service Agreements

For those students who have a handicapping condition that requires accommodations or services to appropriately access their regular education program, an evaluation for a service agreement can be requested. Students receiving services under this category are typically children who are not eligible for special education services, yet demonstrate a medically documented disability that requires special consideration within the educational setting.

The service agreement outlines those accommodations that have been agreed to by the school and parents. Parental consent is required prior to providing services. The service agreement may be reviewed annually to ensure that it remains current. All personnel working with the student should be aware of the provisions of the service agreement so they can implement it. Parental notification is required if there is a change to the service agreement or if the student’s eligibility for services or accommodations changes. Any substantial change in placement requires an evaluation. 

In order to request a Section 504 evaluation a parent should contact their child's guidance counselor, instructional support teacher, or principal.
