Lexington Public Schools
Section 504 Policy Statement
It is the policy of the Board of Education not to discriminate against any otherwise qualified individual with a disability solely by reason of his/her disability, in admission or access to, or treatment or employment in, any program or activity.
It is the intent of the district to ensure that students who are disabled within the definition of Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 are identified, evaluated and provided with appropriate educational services. Students may be disabled under this policy even though they do not require services pursuant to the Individuals with Disabilities Act (IDEA).
Due process rights of students with disabilities and their parents under Section 504 will be enforced.
Ms. Teresa Messersmith is the coordinator of the Section 504 activities.
