make sure the teacher has a copy....
You might want to be absolutely, positively 100% sure that the teacher has a copy of the 504 plan.
When I was teaching, I knew about a situation where the teacher was never given a copy of the 504. Person A thought person B had to do this. Person B thought the nurse had to do this. The teacher never knew the 504 was in place because the meeting had taken place in the grade level prior--she was not in on the meeting.
So, sure enough, dd went to school today. Mind you, we have a new principal and a new teacher (we were told the week before school started about the new teacher). I told the teacher about dd's 504. She did not have a copy. Luckily, I had made an extra copy and handed one to her on the spot.
So make sure the teacher actually has a copy of the 504 if you have one!
I just wanted to warn you--all that work for 504 may not do a thing if the teacher doesn't have a copy!!!
