Ms. Amy Rhodes

I am the Academic Specialist, Coordinator for Section 504 services, and a facilitator for the Multi-Tiered Systems of Support Program at Carpenter.  I graduated from Baylor University with a degree in Secondary Education with certifications in English and History.  I have taught English, Social Studies, and most recently, Multisensory Reading for students with dyslexia, at Carpenter for over thirty years.  Outside of school, I enjoy reading, learning more about world history and cultures, traveling around the world, creating arts and crafts projects, and spending time with friends, family, and my two cats.  

  • Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 protects the rights of individuals with disabilities in a general education setting.  The main purpose of §504 is to guarantee equal access to students like that of their non-disabled peers in any program or activity receiving federal financial assistance.  Section 504 ensures that FAPE (Free & Appropriate Public Education) is provided for ALL students.

    A student may qualify for Section 504 if they have a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities.
