This statute obligates public schools to provide equal access and equal opportunity to otherwise qualified persons with disabilities. To determine 504 eligibility, a student must demonstrate as a result of an evaluation, to have a physical or mental disability/impairment (or having a history of a physical or mental disability/impairment) that substantially limits one or more major life activities.
