Programs for Students with Disabilities under Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act

Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act prohibits discrimination against persons with a disability in any program receiving federal financial assistance.  The purpose of Section 504 is to ensure that individuals with disabilities are given the same opportunity to participate in programs and activities as their nondisabled peers.  Canyons School District shall provide accommodations and services to eligible individuals with disabilities.

Section 504 defines a person with a disability as anyone who:

Has a mental or physical impairment which substantially limits one or more major life activities such as caring for oneself, performing manual tasks, walking, seeing, hearing, speaking, breathing, learning, working, sleeping, standing, lifting, reading, concentrating, thinking, communicating, helping, eating, bending, or operation of a bodily function. (This is not an exhaustive list of major life activities, which means even if an activity or function is not listed it can, nonetheless, be a major life activity.)
