Notice of Rights

Following evaluations and placement or refusal to evaluate or place a student for Section 504
accommodations, parents of students shall be provided a copy of the Section 504 Grievance
Procedures and Notice of Rights (FORM 504-10). Specific requirements for procedural
safeguards include:
• Notice of Rights. A notice of rights will be provided parents or guardians upon evaluation,
prior to a significant change in placement, and as often, thereafter, as the student is
reevaluated.
• Review of Relevant Records. Parents shall be afforded the opportunity to review relevant
educational records. The school district shall follow procedures established in its Family
Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) policy to which parents are provided annual notice.
See the Cumberland County Board of Education Policy Manual, File JR.
• Impartial Hearing. Parents or guardians will have an opportunity for an impartial hearing
regarding the identification, evaluation, or educational placement of their child. Neither Section
504 nor other regulations identify a specific procedure for this purpose. The school district will
contract with a professional with an educational background for the purpose of conducting
impartial hearings (34 CFR 104.36).
