105.1-E3 - Notice of Section 504 Student/Parental Rights




The Linn-Mar Community School District does not discriminate in its educational programs and activities on the basis of a student's disability. It has been determined that your child has a qualifying disability for which accommodations may need to be made to meet their individual needs as adequately as the needs of other students. As a parent/guardian, you have the right to the following:

  • Participation of your child in school district programs and activities, including extra-curricular programs and activities, to the maximum extent appropriate, free of discrimination based upon the student's disability, and at the same level as students without disabilities; and
  • Receipt of free educational services to the extent they are provided students without disabilities; and
  • Receipt of information about your child and your child's educational programs and activities in your native language; and
  • Notice of identification of your child as having a qualifying disability for which accommodations may need to be made, notice prior to evaluation and placement of your child, and the right to periodically request a re-evaluation of your child; and
  • Inspect and review your child's educational records including a right to copy those records for a reasonable fee; you also have a right to ask the school district to amend your child's educational records if you feel the information in the records is misleading or inaccurate; should the school district refuse to amend the records, you have a right to a hearing and to place an explanatory letter in your child's file explaining why you feel the records are misleading or inaccurate; and
  • Hearing before an impartial hearing officer if you disagree with your child's evaluation or placement; you have a right to counsel at the hearing and have the decision of the impartial hearing officer reviewed.

It is the policy of the Linn-Mar Community School District not to discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, sex, disability, religion, creed, age (for employment), marital status (for programs), sexual orientation, gender identity and socioeconomic status (for programs) in its educational programs and its employment practices.

There is a grievance procedure for processing complaints of discrimination. If you have questions or a grievance related to this policy, please contact the district's Equity Coordinators:
