Under the federal regulation Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, a child’s temporary disability enables them to access to FAPE (Free and Appropriate Public Education) and all states receiving federal educational funds are obligated to transport students who have a temporary disabling condition, such as a broken leg. The broken leg severely limits his/her ability to walk which meets the criteria for Section 504 of this legislation. This legislation is all about a child’s right to ACCESS their education and is directly relative to transportation which makes access possible in many cases.
