Section 504 /Americans with Disabilities Act

Schools in the SAU 41 District provide a free appropriate public education and necessary related services to all children with disabilities residing within the District, in accord with the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act, Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, the Americans with Disabilities Act, and New Hampshire law.

           

It is the intent of the district to ensure that students who are disabled within the definition of Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 are identified, evaluated and provided with appropriate educational services.  Students may be disabled within the meaning of Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act even though they do not require services pursuant to the IDEA.

           

For students eligible for services under IDEA, the district shall follow procedures for identification, evaluation, placement, and delivery of services to children with disabilities as provided in the federal and state statutes which govern special education.  For those students who are not eligible for services under IDEA, but, because of a qualifying disability as defined by Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, need or are believed to need specialized instruction or related services, the district shall establish and implement a system of procedural safeguards.  The safeguards shall cover students’ identification, evaluation, educational accommodations, and placement. This system shall include notice, an opportunity for the students’ parent(s)/guardian(s) to examine relevant records, an impartial hearing with the opportunity for participation by the students/ parent(s)/guardian(s), the right to be represented by legal counsel, and a review procedure.

CrowdFunding Disclaimer

It has recently come to our attention that a number of fundraising and “crowdfunding” websites (e.g., GoFundMe, DonorsChoose) have been created to raise money for schools, classrooms, extracurricular activities, and other school-related purposes. While we support any effort to give back to the school community and support our students, unfortunately, some of these webpages use the school districts’ name and mascot to, among other things, attempt to get users to make private donations.

If you have any questions about this notice or would like to make a donation to any of the School Districts and/or their programs, please do not hesitate to contact Kelly Seeley, Business Administrator, SAU 41 (central office for all Hollis and Brookline schools) at kelly.seeley@sau41.org or 603-324-5999.
