    504 Coordinator
    Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 is a Federal civil rights law that is designed to help students who have a mental or physical impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities. Please contact your school counselor to discuss the appropriateness of a 504.

    ​Grade Review Process:
    According to the School District policies, teachers have the academic freedom and independence in the classroom to grade students as they see fit. Here are the instructions on the procedure to file a Grade Review. Please see your counselor for a hard copy.

    • Step ONE: Talk with the teacher about your grade. See if the two of you can come up with a fair solution to resolve the matter.
    • Step TWO: Speak with the Department Chair if you and your teacher can’t come to a satisfactory resolution. Talking with the department chair is just to have a third party take a look at the evidence. The department chair may not be able to intervene.
    • Step THREE: Meet with the principal only if you can prove extreme discrimination or biased behavior in the grading process. You will receive a "P" grade if it has been determined that you were indeed discriminated against.
