How does a student become identified with a 504 designation?

Posted by:

Section 504 regulations require that decisions regarding eligibility, programs, related services, and accommodations be made by a group of persons knowledgeable about the student, the meaning of the evaluation data, and the placement options.

The Pupil Services Team (PST) or Core Team (CT) in each district building serves as the assessment team for Section 504 referrals. PSTs/CTs are comprised of staff in various areas (multi-disciplinary) and chaired by a building administrator, psychologist, or other staff member.
