504 Public Notice

The Gasconade County R-1 School District, as a recipient of federal financial assistance from the United 
States Department of Education and operates a public elementary or secondary education program and/or 
activity, is required to undertake to identify and locate every qualified person residing in the District who 
is not receiving a public education; and take appropriate steps to notify disabled persons and their parents 
or guardians of the District’s duty.

The Gasconade County R-1 School District assures that it will provide a free appropriate public education 
(FAPE) to each qualified disabled person in the District’s jurisdiction regardless of the nature or severity 
of the person’s disability.   For purposes of Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, the provision of 
an appropriate education is the provision of regular or special and related aids and services that (i) are 
designed to meet individual educational needs of disabled persons as adequately as the needs of 
nondisabled persons are met and (ii) are based on adherence to procedures that satisfy the requirements of 
the 504 federal regulations.

The Gasconade County R-1 School District has developed a 504 Procedures Manual for the 
implementation of federal regulations for Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act, Subpart D.  This 
Procedures Manual may be reviewed at each building counselor office between 9-3 on Monday - Friday.
This notice will be provided in native languages as appropriate.
