Information Regarding Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act

Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 prohibits discrimination against persons with a disability in any program receiving federal financial assistance. As it relates to the school setting, it assures that persons with disabilities have educational opportunities and benefits equal to those provided to nondisabled students.

The Scottsboro City School System has specific responsibilities under Section 504, which include the responsibility to identify, evaluate, and, if the child is determined to be eligible under Section 504, to afford access to appropriate and reasonable educational accommodations.  Additional procedural safeguards and rights may be afforded students who are identified under Section 504.  A copy of the 504 Procedural Safeguards and Rights can be accessed using the related documents link found to the right of this narrative.  If additional information is desired regarding Section 504 in relation to the school setting, please contact Scottsboro City School System's 504 Coordinator, Mrs. Anna Watts, at 256-218-2109.
