504 Eligibility

Section 504 Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 (commonly referred to as “504”) guarantees certain rights to parents/guardians of students with disabilities. Farmington Public Schools attempts to identify students who may be eligible under Section 504 and inform parents/guardians of these rights.

By way of very brief summary, parents/guardians have the right to request that a student be evaluated for eligibility under Section 504. If a student is found eligible, a Section 504 Accommodation Plan is developed, with parental participation. The entire process is typically completed within thirty (30) school days.

Farmington Public Schools has developed a document titled Procedural Safeguards which explains the rights of parents/guardians under Section 504. The document is available on-line by following this link: http://www.farmington.k12.mi.us/district/specialeducation/504_procedural_safeguards.pdf. A copy of the Procedural Safeguards may also be requested from any building principal. For further information, please contact: Child Find Department, (248) 785-2060 [ages 5 and under] Student’s Building Administrator [ages 6 and above]
