I have a 504 meeting on Monday. Per the school director it's to determine my ds' 504 eligibility (she said "I think he does" *qualify) and she said we're going to "create formal accomodations that we all agree to".

So, here's my question, do I go into the meeting with my list of accomodations that I'm looking for (based on ds' allergies and doctor recommendations)? I have this done and it's very detailed (thanks to this site) but I'm not sure how I would present that. Do I just take my ideas from it and verbally tell them or do I hand them my printed up paperwork?

I would bring it with you to refer to. In many cases the school will draft an accommodation plan (they don't like to let parents write it) and you can discuss changes at the meeting.

I agree totally-- you'll want written "notes" to refer to no matter what is going on. I did-- and my 504 meeting? Was a conference call that I knew wasn't going to debate elibility and was only going to involve three other people and at most two or three details of accommodations.... Still, I would have gotten lost without my notes.
Good to be prepared. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

Absolutely bring all of your information. If you don't need it - not a big deal. Chances are you will need it and this is your chance to have major face to face input in the 504.
The qualifing part of my 504 meeting lasted all of 5 minutes - the rest of the hour was used to discuss accomodations. We never needed another meeting. They forwarded a 504 to me via email, I edited it, they reworked it and then I went in just to sign the document.
I hope your school system is one of the easier ones.

Bwhahaha! Not even close. We'll see what happens tomorrow. Maybe they'll tell me since there's no campus school nurse (she visits just to pick up paperwork) that nobody will be able to use the meds and etc.
Ugh.
