Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973
The San Ramon Valley Unified School District will provide a "free appropriate public education" (FAPE) to each qualified student with a disability who is in the school district's jurisdiction, regardless of the nature or severity of the disability, under Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973. Under Section 504, FAPE consists of the provision of regular or special education and related aids and services designed to meet the student's individual educational needs as adequately as the needs of non-disabled students are met. For more information, please contact the 504 Coordinator at your student’s school.

Family Educational Rights & Privacy Act (FERPA)
The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) sets out the requirements for the protection of privacy of parents and students, including privacy of student records. Generally, parents and/or students must provide written consent before an educational agency may disclose PII. However, there are exceptions to this general rule. Specifically, an educational agency must provide PII when ordered by a court, which the CDE has been ordered to do in this litigation. The CDE is obligated to inform the parent or student that the court has ordered it to produce documents and/or data that includes those individuals’ PII, and that such persons may object directly to the court regarding this disclosure.
