Welcome to our 504, Dyslexia, and RTI Page!

  • Here at Chapel Hill, we pride ourselves on making sure our students do not go without the support they need. Each of the special programs differ in some ways, but they all have the same goal of providing support for students who need it.

    Below you will find a description of each of the programs:

    Section 504-Section 504 is a part of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 that prohibits discrimination based upon disability. Section 504 is an anti-discrimination, civil rights statute that requires the needs of students with disabilities to be met as adequately as the needs of the non-disabled are met. 

    Dyslexia-Dyslexia is a specific learning disability that is neurobiological in origin and is characterized by difficulties with accurate and/or fluent word recognition and by poor spelling and decoding abilities. Secondary consequences may include problems in reading comprehension and reduced reading experience that can impede growth of vocabulary and background knowledge. 

    RTI-Response to Intervention, also known as a multitiered system of supports (MTSS) is a systematic process to ensure every student receives the additional time and support needed to learn at high levels. 

    Each program has a campus coordinator and trained staff members to meet the needs of the students being served.
