I&RS/Section 504 in a nutshell

What is I&RS?  Intervention and Referral Services (I&RS) is a state mandated multidisciplinary team comprised of teachers, administrators, child study team members, school counselor, and the school nurse, which designs, implements, and monitors intervention plans for students experiencing various challenge in school in the areas of academics, social/emotional/behavioral, and health.  The I&RS team works collaboratively with staff members and parents to develop actions plans to best facilitate and personalized student success.

What is Section 504? Section 504 is a federal civil rights statute which protects the rights of students with disabilities.  A student is eligible under Section 504 if s/he has had a record of having, or is regarded as having a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits or impacts a major life function such as: walking, seeing, hearing, breathing, learning, speaking, working, caring for oneself, or performing manual tasks.  A 504 accommodation plan is designed for each student according to individual need.
