As a part of the enrollment process, after a student has been offered a space, parents or guardians will be asked to notify the school if their child is on a 504 or an IEP. Jeffco Schools will request further information to ensure that the school can service the student’s needs. These considerations will be reviewed on a case by case basis by Jefferson County Schools.
