Protected Handicapped Students

In compliance with the state and federal law (Chapter 15/Section 504), the South Eastern School District will provide to protected handicapped students services or accommodations which are needed to provide equal opportunity to participate in and obtain the benefits of the school program and extracurricular activities, to the maximum extent appropriate for each individual student. These related aides are provided without discrimination or cost to the student or family. In order to qualify as a protected handicapped student, the child must be of school age and have a physical or mental impairment which substantially limits one or more major life activities, have a record of such impairment, or be regarded as having such impairment. 

Services and protections for protected handicapped students are distinct from those applicable to exceptional students enrolled or seeking enrollment in special education programs. For further information about the evaluation procedures and provisions of services to protected handicapped students, contact the building principals.
