Others Present: 

1.  Review 504 Plan to include in the Comprehensive Education Plan

Donna Madore said that the 504 Plan was part of the board policy book.  However, it is a plan and should be included in the Comprehensive Education Plan.  The plan has been edited and updated.  The 504 Plan is an access law to make sure students have equal access to general education.  Special education is where students need specially designed instruction from a special educator.  There are a significant number of students who qualify for a 504 Plan and the State’s EPS formula does not allocate any funds for this service.

Motion by Jennifer Neumeyer to move the 504 Plan to the board, second by April Cusick, so moved 2-0.

Meeting adjourned at 5:40 p.m.
