All accredited Iowa schools must comply with Section 504. Section 504 applies to elementary and secondary education, preschool and adult education, and private education.

School 504 Contact — A School 504 contact is generally a student service or general education staff member appointed by the principal to coordinate school-based 504 efforts including convening the 504 team, ensuring accommodations are implemented and providing outreach to parents of 504 students with disabilities.

Substantial Limitation — A substantial limitation means an individual is substantially limited in the performance of a major life activity as compared to most people in the general population.
