Section 504 Procedural Safeguards

 

The mission of the Douglas County School System is to provide a quality education for all students in a safe, supportive environment.   In an effort to better achieve this mission the system has established Section 504 Procedural Safeguards. Information concerning 504 can be found in each student handbook.

Any student or parent or guardian (“grievant”) may request an impartial hearing due to the school system’s actions or inactions regarding your child's identification, evaluation, or educational placement under Section 504. Requests for an impartial hearing must be in writing to the school system’s Section 504 Coordinator; however, a grievant’s failure to request a hearing in writing does not alleviate the school system’s obligation to provide an impartial hearing if the grievant orally requests an impartial hearing through the school system’s Section 504 Coordinator. The school system’s Section 504 Coordinator will assist the grievant in completing the written Request for Hearing. The Section 504 Coordinator may be contacted through the school system’s central office.  Copies of the 504 Procedural Safeguards and Notice of Rights of Students and Parents under Section 504 may be found at the Georgia Department of Education 504 web link , may be picked up at the central office, or at any of the school offices.
