Re: [IPp] another 504 question
We had a 504 day one, however, we forgot to include testing in the
classroom. We told the nurse that it was our preference, however, she
resisted. Our daughter, 5, refused to go to the nurse's office one day to
get tested. The nurse came to her, in the classroom. From then on, she
agreed to test her in the classroom. The nurse could not take her to the
bathroom to be tested. (The bathroom was in the class.) Apparently at
least in NY, adults, (including teachers), can't go into the bathroom with
children by law.
It is definitely good to have, even if it takes some work to get. One
reason is that you never know if you will transfer schools and the situation
is different where you go. We transferred and the 504 plan was just
transferred over. I just met with the nurse to review and there were
absolutely no issues.
