The 504 committee includes teachers, administrators and School Counselors. Mr. Noel Anderson is currently the Chairperson of the 504 Committee, assisted by Mr. Rich Jacobs. The Committee meets weekly to discuss the 504 plans currently being implemented. Each student that has a 504 plan is assigned a Case Manager. The Case Manager works with the Counselor to assess whether the plan is appropriate and that it is being fully implemented. Parents that want to learn more about the 504 Committee should contact Mr. Anderson in the Counseling Center.LD & HIGHER EDUCATION
