Re: HELP!!!!! was Re: [IPp] re: Noah's 504 plan



As a special education teacher let me explain the difference between 504 and
IDEA. A school system is mandated by the school to comply with a 504 if they
receive federal funding, however, a school receives no money from the
federal government for students who have 504's. That is why schools don't
want to do 504. Children with diabetes now fall under IDEA which does give
school districts federal money so as parents we may want to start heading in
that direction. An IEP that is not followed can cost a school district
federal money beacuse if a child has a special education IEP they fall under
idea and therefore the school receives money for the child. An IEP is a
legal and binding contract that can't bechanged on a whim but only if all
parties agree to a change. Hope this clears things up.
