Section 504 is a part of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 that prohibits discrimination based upon disability. It requires the needs of students with disabilities to be met as adequately as the needs of the non-disabled. The student's disability would be a physical and/or mental impairment that substantially limits a major life activity (walking, seeing, hearing, speaking, breathing, learning, and working).
