504 Plan should have option to not auto close and keep it open.
Currently, Aeries will generate end date of 504 plan every year and generate a new open date at the beginning of the year. I would like to have the option to not close automatically and keep the plan open.
The most recent CALPADS dataguide says that 504 plan doesn't have to close every year.

Defiite YES. These plans are renewed annually; however, it occurs at various times during the year based on the original effective date of the accommodation. These should not be an end endo-of-year date added automatically.

I also vote for the add new meeting or add a re-evaluation instead of only the add new plan.
Calpads wants us to maintain the original start date like special education records, not start a new file each year.

Also, in the 504 table, instead of adding a new "plan" there should be a way to add a new "meeting." The plan is the same plan and should be kept open until it is closed for a new plan. For annual meetings, there should be a tab to keep track of the annual meetings on the same plan, instead of adding a new plan every year.
