Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 prohibits discrimination against persons with a disability in any program receiving federal financial assistance.  The Waukee Community School District has the obligations under Section 504 to identify, evaluate, and, if the student is determined to be eligible, to afford access to appropriate educational services.  If the parent or guardian disagrees with the determination made by the professional staff of the school district, he/she has a right to a hearing with an impartial hearing officer.
