TENANTS: There's no state or federal eviction moratorium in place, meaning you'll face immediate eviction if you don’t take action after receiving an eviction notice. If you've received an eviction notice or order, please visit the Civil Law Self-Help Center ASAP at the Regional Justice Center at 200 Lewis Ave downtown. Other tenants with questions can connect with a legal advocate at 702-386-1070 or info@lacsn.org. For more info and our COVID-19 Legal & Financial Toolkit, click here.

Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act states that a person with a disability may not be excluded from, denied participation in, or be discriminated against by any federally funded program. 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. Section 504 defines a person with a disability as anyone who has a physical or mental impairment which substantially limits one or more major life activities.

Major life activities include: caring for one’s self, walking, seeing, hearing, speaking, breathing, working, performing manual tasks, and learning. A person seeking relief under Section 504 must have a record of the impairment.

Once a student receives a 504 plan, that student will be given accommodations. Additional examples of accommodations include: test shall be read verbatim to student; student shall receive a cooling off period; student shall be allowed to tape lectures for replay; arrange for assistance in carrying books; allow extra time between classes; provide modified eating utensils; provide a more comfortable style of desk; have teachers prepare outlines of presentations; remove allergens; provide rest periods.

A form written request for evaluation under IDEA and/or 504 is available here.
