The Barrow County Board of Education welcomes community input when it is motivated by a sincere desire to improve the quality of our educational programs or to equip the schools to do their tasks more efficiently. The Board has confidence in the professional staff and desires to support their actions. This regulation does not supersede any employee’s or citizen’s right to contact Board members directly. However, whenever a concern is expressed directly to the Board as a whole or to a Board member as an individual, it will be referred to the administration for study and resolution.

Section 504, as it is often called, is a civil rights law that covers the rights of individuals with disabilities. It prohibits, among other things, discrimination on the basis of disability for students in public schools. Students eligible under Section 504 receive a plan that outlines how the student will be able to fully participate in the educational process despite potential disabilities and barriers.

Schools are required to provide appropriate, reasonable adaptations and modifications for 504 eligible students. Further information on Section 504 can be found in the supporting documents below and on the Office of Civil Rights webpage.
