Click here for the Vermont Agency of Education Manual on Section 504.

Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 is a federal law prohibiting discrimination on the basis of disability. It applies to any entity that receives federal funding including public schools. The Americans with Disabilities Act, enacted in 1991, provides the same obligations on public elementary and secondary schools as Section 504, but without the limitation of applying only to recipients of federal funds.
