How long is it reasonable to wait for them to schedule the 504 Eligibility meeting?

I requested the meeting in writing on April 18th and requested a meeting by May 5th. She told me how very busy the team is at this time of year and that they can't meet by my requested deadline. She went on to say they have just sent out invitations to parents through May 10th.

At what point would you contact them again and do you make the request again, go over the 504C's head at the school (and write/call the district level 504C)? I don't want to let them stall too long, but I also don't want to bug them too much.

TIA,
Maddy

We just received the "Procedural Safeguards Available to Parents of Students With Disabilities" from our SD. It states that -
The parent has the right to: Have an initial evaluation conducted by a multidisciplinary evaluation team and convene an IEP meeting within 30 school days after the school has received the written permission to evaluate. This timeline may be extended by agreement between the parents and the agency.
Once it gets close to the 30 days, I'd start "reminding" them of this right. If they still don't act, then write a letter to the superintendent.
Hope this helps!
