Section 504 is a federal Civil rights Statue enacted to ensure non-discrimination against persons with disabilities. It states that no otherwise qualified disabled individual... shall, solely by reason of disability, be excluded from the participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination by any program or activity receiving federal financial assistance. The Lincoln Parish School Board provide accommodations to meet the needs of disabled students who are covered by Section 504 and enrolled in our school system. Students who demonstrate characteristics of Dyslexia, and may or may not be covered by Section 504 are provided instruction in a Multisensory Structured Language Program
