The Section 504 Grievance Procedure is intended to provide for the prompt and equitable resolution of any complaints alleging any action prohibited by Section 504 or Title II. The procedure listed within the Grievance procedure are provided as a vehicle to fairly and expeditiously resolve concerns when they arise.
