Program Participation - Section 504




Support > Online Guides > State Specific Guide > Ohio > Program Participation - Section 504

Special Programs participation tracking determines whether (and key info about how) a student "participates" in a given program at any given time based on dates and content of completed documentation for any given student.

Below are the documents used to calculate a student's participation in Section 504 in Ohio. In cases where an older version of the form exists, the documentation below applies similarly.

If a student should be considered as participating in Section 504 and does not display as such in SameGoal, inspect the table below. The student requires completed documentation that changes their participation status to "Participating". Conversely, if a student should NOT be considered as participating in Section 504 but does appear to participate in SameGoal, inspect the table below to identify documentation that should be added to change the student's status to "Not participating".
