Re: [IPp] School Frustrations - 504's
Unfortunately, that doesn't imply that you get a good one. I had to keep
fighting to make sure the nurse at our school was competent. We had a
previously retired looked like she was 80 y/o and just had no clue. This
one was followed by one that kept telling me, "I don't think your child
should eat that", and wanted to basically starve her. Who is the same one
that when testing my daughter pricked her finger so close to the nail that
blood was under her nail.
But yes, part of the reason we switched to public school was to stop having
the conversations we previously had in private pre-school with no nurse.
They would not get one because, besides the nurse's salary, their insurance
premium would also go up for liability coverage.
We haven't had too many 504 issues. Basically every year, I send the forms
to the endo, send her an email with all my requests, she copies/pastes in
and it's mailed. Never had a meeting at the school. I then meet with the
nurse, (if the person has changed), review care and pray for the best.
