Does a 504 place your child in the special education program? (military please read)
So I was talking with my MIL about placing Jackson under the 504 when he starts school. Currently he is being evaluated to be placed in their preschool program to catch him up in time to start Kindergarten in Fall 2008. But if we are placing him into the school for this preschool, then I need to look into the 504 for him. I mentioned this to my MIL and she used to work for a school district in Utah until last year. She mentioned that all the children who had a 504 were automatically placed in the Special Ed Dept and that all testing and classes, etc were handled by those teachers. My husband and I are concerned about this because we don't want Jackson to be labeled "disabled" by his peers. He's very smart, and we fully expect him to be where he's supposed to be by the time he starts Kindergarten.
Also, are the 504's handled differently with the DODD's schools? I don't know if different regs apply with my son attending a military school, or if they have to abide by the same laws, etc. Especially in the situation where we are overseas but still located on a military installation. Thanks so much for all of your help. I plan on putting in a phone call to our school district tomorrow. I printed out the "How-To" guide, and plan on using that. Thanks so much.
