Hanover County Public Schools Section 504 Procedural Safeguards

Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 (Section 504) protects the rights of students with disabilities: qualified students who have a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities. "Major life activities" means functions such as caring for oneself, performing manual tasks, walking, seeing, hearing, speaking, breathing, learning, and working. This is not an inclusive list of major activities, however.

Hanover County Public Schools has a system of procedural safeguards in place with respect to actions regarding the identification, evaluation, or educational placement of students with disabilities. As parent or guardian –

1. You have the right to receive notice of any proposed actions related to the identification,  
    evaluation, or educational placement of your child.

2. You have the right to examine all relevant records of your child.

3. You have the right to an impartial hearing, with opportunity for participation by you and
    representation by counsel, to resolve disagreements concerning the identification, evaluation,
    or educational placement of your child.

4. You have the right to a review of an impartial hearing officer’s final decision if you disagree
    with that decision
