pI'm sorry I didn't reply sooner. I didn't check this thread until now. /p
pThe district 504 coordinator cancelled the day of the meeting so we just had the district nurse as our speaker. In our state it is mandatory to have a health plan in place if you have a life-threatening condition. (See [url="http://www.spokaneschools.org/NutritionServices/pdf/Law.pdf"]http://www.spokaneschools.org/NutritionServices/pdf/Law.pdf[/url] for more info) so most cases are handled with health plans. If those aren't adequate then the 504 may be sought (but I actually don't know much more about it since health plans were adequate and followed in our situation)/p
