What is the difference between an Individualized Education Program and a 504 Plan?
An Individualized Education Program (IEP) is developed by an IEP team for a student who is eligible for
one of the 13 disability classifications (defined under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act
and New York State law) and requires specialized instruction and/or related services to meet their
instructional goals. A Section 504 Accommodation Plan (“504 Plan”) is for a qualified student with a
disability who needs support to access DOE programs and activities. More information on IEPs and
the special education process can be found here.
