Parent and/or Student Rights under Section 504
The following is a description of student and parent rights under Section 504 and other federal laws. The intent of the law is to keep you fully informed concerning decisions about your child, and to inform you of your rights if you disagree with any of these decisions. Your child has the right to take part in and receive benefits from public education programs without discrimination based on a disability. Your child has the right to:
• Receive a free appropriate public education. This includes the right to be educated with other students to the maximum extent appropriate. It also includes the right to have the school make reasonable accommodations to allow your child an equal opportunity to participate in school and school-related activities.
• Be educated in facilities and receive services comparable to those provided for students without disabilities.
• Receive an evaluation, eligibility determination, and if qualified, receive placement and accommodation decisions based upon a variety of information sources and by individuals who know the student, disability, evaluation data, and placement options.
• Receive an equal opportunity to participate in nonacademic and extracurricular activities offered by the school. As a parent/guardian, you have the right to:
• Examine all relevant records relating to decisions regarding your child’s identification, evaluation, educational program, and placement.
• File a local grievance with your school if you feel your child is being discriminated against because of his/her disability and/or is not able to access his/her free appropriate public education.
• Request a due process impartial hearing to help resolve issues with the school. It is important parents or guardians be notified of their right to request a hearing regarding the identification, evaluation, or educational placement of individuals with disabilities and to be represented by counsel [34 CFR § 104.36].
• Contact the Section 504 Educational Equity monitor at the Utah State Board of Education in Student Advocacy Services at 801-538-7828.

NOTIFICATION OF VISION SCREENING LETTER
Dear Parent(s) or Guardian:
Your child will be given a vision screening on Monday, Sept. 19, 2018. Before screening is conducted, state law requires parents be informed that vision screening is not a substitute for an eye examination by an eye care specialist.
Vision screening may take place at any point during the school year. Every attempt is made to have student vision screening completed within 60 days from the start of the school year. Several methods for vision screening are state approved and available for student screening. Any of the following methods may be used to screen your child: Distance vision charts, photo screening, or computerized programs. School screenings are coordinated by the school nurse who may use trained parent volunteers and school staff to assist, or may request state-approved vision screening assistance from the Lions Sight Foundation, Friends for Sight, or the Utah Division of Services for the Blind and Visually Impaired.
You will receive a referral letter if your child fails the screening. However, even if your child passed, it is important that your child see an eye care specialist once a year. School vision screening does not evaluate eye health and cannot uncover important vision problems or prescribe treatment. Vision referral information, on children age 8 and under, will be reported to the Utah State Division for the Blind and Visually Impaired as stated in Utah Law 53A-11-203.
Because academic learning is 80% visual, and visual problems are best detected and treated early, a comprehensive eye and vision examination is recommended. Healthy eyes and good vision are essential for success in school.
Please provide the school with written notification if you do not want your child to participate in the screening program.
Sincerely, Mrs. Adamic
