Well I have to laugh about the 504 coordinator in our district. Nobody knows who it is for sure, but our principal said, "It's probably me." The Special Ed Director said, "Well, I definitely know it's NOT me!" But anyway, the Special Ed Director helped tremendously and the Principal and other administrators/teachers/etc. have been wonderfully cooperative and supportive.
We're starting first-grade planning around the second week of February so we can have the prepared plan ready to implement in June. Early planning has really helped things go smoothly with minimal bumps along the way.

Well, I appreciate all the help and support I've gotten from all of ya'll...it wouldn't have been possible!
He also backed his call up with a return email that stated he appreciated the email and attention to this vital matter, and that he'd be calling me soon w/an appt. time!
I'm under the impression that the person here that handles the 504 is the Student Service Specialist, I just think it's labeled under this name so they can have a multi-title/job.
I'll keep u all posted.

Hello, I read your reply. My twin boys will start school not this fall but next and I am extremely worried! My oldest is 5 and not PA but is in a pre-k program at the public elementary school for speech and I am not very happy with it. I have spoken with them about the twins. Can you give me more information and possibly samples of letters submitted withthe 504 program? Thank you!

[b]I let our principal know about two years in advance that our son was coming his way with a severe allergy. Last year at this time, we had our first meeting with principal and superintendent, after which I spoke with the Director of Special Education. He was extremely helpful in pointing me in the right direction. My planning started last year, but the school's planning really started last February/March during the registration process. They took my rough draft 504 at that point and sat down and really analyzed it line by line and sought input from all the kindergarten teachers. We've had frequent meetings, phone calls, and emails since that time to nail down our plans.
My feeling is that it is never too early to get started, and they may appreciate the advance warning if you have a very long and detailed 504 like we do.[/b]

I'm not real sure if you were addressing your question to me or Ryan's Mom...
I'll be glad to email you the letter that I initiated contact with our principal. And will also email you some information that I've pulled from this board to help in my research for the 504 plan...But someone else will be a much better help to you than me.
All I can say is that the principal was very happy that I contacted him now on this, I could tell by my conversation w/him and the email I rec'vd from him. So it will be a great benefit for you to start now, especially if you already anticipate problems, which is how I read your post.
My email is [email]lanalogan@hotmail.com[/email] if you want to discuss this further with me, if this is for Ryans mom, you can just relay that to me.
Good luck [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

I'll reraise Ryan's 504 and letters. Perhaps Lam will reraise hers as well. If I remember correctly, her child's 504 is similar to Ryan's, I think, in being a detailed one.

I raised ours. "Our outline for school".
Our plan for reactions is under "Can you help me straighten some things out".

I had pulled Lam's, and others, last week and printed to compare them and draft my own. Thanks for re-raising them, I'll be printing yours out Ryan's Mom.
I remember Lams and Rhona's were really good ones, not that the other weren't, I just got a lot of detail from theres.
I look forward to reading Ryan's too.
Debra, This was the best way for me to get an idea of what I needed to be asking for and details I wouldn't have thought of to include. They are a big help.
Thanks Ryan's Mom and Lam for raising those threads for her.

We have an appointment on 3/25 with the school nurse, the cafeteria lady and the principal. I'm SO NERVOUS!!! DS won't be entering the school in 2004 but we're all just starting to coordinate now.
