Section 504

Section 504 regulations require a school district to provide a "free appropriate public education" (FAPE) to each qualified student with a disability who is in the school district's jurisdiction, regardless of the nature or severity of the disability.

The New Hampshire Department of Education provides families, students, schools and other interested parties with guidance and information designed to inform and implement the 504 process, thus helping to ensure that qualified students receive FAPE.
