This commitment requires that no discrimination shall occur regarding admission or access to, or treatment or employment in, any program and activity on the basis of age, race, color, national or ethnic origin, ancestry, citizenship, sex, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, disability, medical condition, religion, or marital status.

Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 provides equal access to education by providing accommodations for students identified disabled that substantially limit one or more life activities even if they are not eligible for special education services. Further, Section 504 prohibits discrimination against students with disabilities in district programs, gives parents/guardian rights to examine relevant records, to participate in an impartial hearing including the opportunity for representation by counsel and a review procedure.
It is the policy of the district to provide a free appropriate public education to each student with disabilities. Parents/guardians who believe their student may have a disability are to contact the principal of the school to initiate a referral to the Student Success Team for review. For more information, contact the 504 coordinator at (805) 289-1826 ext. 1012.
