PROVIDENCE SCHOOL DISTRICT PROCEDURE SECTION 504 OF THE REHABILITATION ACT OF 1973 AND THE AMERICANS WITH DISABILITIES AMENDED ACT The Providence School District (the District) will ensure that no student with a disability as defined in Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 (Section 504) and the Americans with Disabilities Amended Act (ADAA) within the District’s jurisdiction will be denied, because of his/her disability, participation in curricular, intramural, or interscholastic activities or any of the services offered or rendered regularly to the students of this District. No otherwise qualified person shall, solely by reason of his/her disability, be subjected to discrimination under any program or activity sponsored by the Providence School District. The District is committed to ensure that students with Section 504 disabilities be identified, evaluated, and provided with a free appropriate public education (FAPE). The District does not discriminate on the basis of disability with regard to admission, access to education services, treatment or employment in its programs and activities. DEFINITIONS The following definitions apply: Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, (42 USC 12102 et seq.) Sec. 794 Nondiscrimination under Federal Grants and Programs: “No otherwise qualified individual with a disability in the United States, as defined in Sec. 705(20) of this title, shall, solely by reason of her or his disability, be excluded from the participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance or under any program or activity conducted by any executive agency or by the United States Postal Service.” (29 USC Sec. 794 (a). The Americans with Disabilities Amended Act ADAA Effective January 1, 1990, the Americans with Disabilities Amendment Act also amended the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 such that the definition of a disability under the Rehabilitation Act (29 U. S. C. 705) is the same as the definition of a disability under the ADAA (42 U. S. C. 12102). This policy incorporates the amendment to the Americans with Disabilities Act.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
