• Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, with its subsequent amendments, is a federal civil rights law that prohibits discrimination against students with disabilities. Section 504 regulations require school districts to provide appropriate education to students with disabilities. At Santa Clara Unified School District, we are committed to upholding and implementing Section 504 to ensure your student receives full access to their education. Most of our forms are available in Spanish and other translations are available. If this is needed, please contact your school site.
