The Rehabilitation Act of 1973 provides protection against discrimination on the basis of one's disability in any program or activity provided by school districts and other educational providers that receive federal funding. Stated another way, the purpose of Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 is to ensure that students who are Section 504 eligible have educational opportunities equivalent to their nondisabled peers.
Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 requires that:
No otherwise qualified individual with disabilities in the United States...shall, solely by reason of his or her disability, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subject to discrimination under any program or activity receiving federalfinancial assistance or activity conducted by any Executive agency or by the United States Postal Service.
