Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 is a Federal Civil Rights Law that is designed to eliminate disability discrimination in programs and activities that receive Federal funds. Ogden School District provides a broad spectrum of protections against discrimination on the basis of disability. All students who meet the definition of an individual with a disability under Section 504 are entitled to receive regular or special education and related aids and services that are designed to meet their individual educational needs as adequately as the needs of students without disabilities are met. We work diligently to provide students with a disability an equal opportunity to participate in athletics and extracurricular activities, and to be free from bullying and harassment based on disability.
“No otherwise qualified individual with a disability in the United States . . . shall, solely by reason of her or his disability, be excluded from the participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance . . .”
