504 Eligibility, Determination and Plan Development Support
In the Jackson Public School District, 504 plans are referred to as Equal Education Opportunity Plans. If a student is determined eligible under Section 504 and in need of accommodation, the 504 planning team will develop a 504 plan. The team is responsible for determining what specific accommodations are required and developing the Equal Education Opportunity Plan. The 504 planning team shall consider all relevant information, including parental input and any assessments conducted. The parent or guardian must be invited to attend any meetings where services for the student will be determined. Upon development, all school personnel who work with the student must be informed of the plan and provided a copy of the student's accommodations and modifications.
