Section 504 is an accommodation plan that is provided to a student with a disability that affects the student’s learning but does not require special education instruction. The Individuals With Disabilities Act (IDEA) is an expansive federal law that covers eligible students with disabilities and ensures the opportunity to receive a Free Appropriate Public Education (FAPE).
