Under the Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 (Section 504), the Franklin-McKinley School District has an obligation to provide a free, appropriate public education (FAPE) to each student within its jurisdiction who is a qualified, disabled person within the meaning of Section 504. In order to qualify for a Section 504 plan, students must have a physical or mental disability which substantially limits a major life activity.
Each FMSD school has a staff member who is the 504 Coordinator. To contact the 504 Coordinator, you may contact your child's school directly or you may request the information from the Student Welfare & Student Support at (408) 283-6092.
Director of Student Welfare & Student Support (SWSS)
Parents who are dissatisfied with the Director's handling of a 504 complaint, or who wish to address their complaint immediately to an authority outside of the District, may file a complaint with the Office of Civil Rights.
