RE: [IPp] re: School Problems/let's change it

Uhhmmmm, over here (MAS waving his hand)

We just had our first 504 meeting today. We got everything we requested.
Classroom testing, each teacher is trained with the glucagon, knowledgeable
person on fieldtrips, unlimited water/bathroom, carry ALL diabetic supplies,
delay or retake of tests when bg is below 70 or over 200, absences/tardiness
not held against her. We just wrote the 504 and had the endocrinologist sign
it and took it to the meeting and they read through it and the nurse said "I
wish I had a glucagon to show the teachers", and Pat reached into her purse
and gave her one. In and out in 30 minutes, slam dunk.

Same state, same county, but different district as you. Come back to
Garland, we have greased the tracks.
