Disability Support

  • Ms. Vining-Gonzalez is the 504 Coordinator for Aspire Middle School. If you think your student has a disability that substantially impacts one or more life activity, please contact her to start a 504 plan evaluation to determine eligibility. Please be sure to respond to all communication from the counseling office regarding 504 plan evaluations, reviews, and re-evaluations. Your participation is an important part of this process.
