Danielle's Guide to 504 Plans
Top Tips for Developing a 504 Plan
1. I'm not an "expert" on 504 plans, but I do know if you can show that your child has a food allergy, it is considered a disability and schools are then required to have a 504 plan. Schools must adhere to the specifics of your child's 504 plan.
2. Include scenarios for when your child is away from the classroom. For example, if your child takes the bus, you can detail and require that the bus driver is educated and trained to use the Epi-pen.
3. In our school, the music instruments are rentals. This creates a scenario of potential risk. We were able to specify that all the mouthpieces and instruments are cleaned ahead of my son using them.
