Student Services


Kennewick school counselors provide universal learning supports for all students and are often positioned to be the first school-employed professionals to recognize and address students’ social and emotional, career, and academic needs.

In compliance with SSB 5030, Kennewick School District has a Comprehensive School Counseling Program Framework and Transition Plan. View the plan and other documents below.

Section 504

Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, commonly called “Section 504,” is a federal law that protects students from discrimination based on disability. Section 504 assures that students with disabilities have educational opportunities and benefits equal to those provided to students without disabilities. To be eligible, a student must have a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activity.

Parents & legal guardians have the right to be informed by the school district of your rights under Section 504. This is a notice of yours and your child’s rights under Section 504 and the rights you have if you disagree with the school district’s decisions.
