504 Plan Information

American with Disabilities Act, Section 504

Section 504 is a federal statute that prohibits discrimination based upon a disability. Obligations for school districts start when federal funds are received.

Nondiscrimination Policy Statement

It is the goal of the Dudley-Charlton Regional School District to promote an environment that is free from discrimination and affirmatively provides access to employment and equal educational opportunity. Discrimination, including that based on race, color, sex, religion, national origin, ancestry, disability, homelessness or sexual orientation of an individual occurring in the workplace or in other settings in which individuals may be entitled access to educational opportunity is unlawful and will not be tolerated by this organization. Further, any retaliation against an individual for cooperating with an investigation of a discrimination complaint is similarly unlawful and will not be tolerated. To achieve our goal, acts of discrimination or harassment will not be tolerated and we have provided procedures by which inappropriate conduct will be addressed, if encountered by an employee, student or member of the community.

The following person has been designated to handle inquiries regarding nondiscrimination
