Does anyone have a sample IHP for school? I am running out of time to have ours ready for tomorrow and would love to see some others to get an idea..... These 504 and IHP plans are a lot of work, not to mention a bit ovewhelming!!

Thanks for any info......

Hi Ginger. We have an IHP for our daughter who attends a public school. I posted our school district's guideline's under a separate post called "Ladue School District's Food Allergy Guidelines".
Just FYI, I wish that I had known about the 504 plans before she started kindergarten and asked for it before we walked in the school doors. It wasn't until we started having some difficulties with her 1st grade teacher that we started investigating options for a written accommodation plan. Our IHP was adopted the following year and has worked very well. But... if I had it to do all over again, I would have requested 504 status before she started K.
Anyway, our IHP is 13 pages:
IHP form (4 pages): this is essentially the same form that is included in the FAAN notebook (I think it's from Idaho state). The school district has modified and adopted it. We meet to review/modify the IHP twice a year~ in August (the week before school starts) and again in February to make any tweaks. Each time there have been some minor changes. I especially like that the last page has a place for the signatures for everyone who participates in the IHP process. For us, that includes her primary teacher, the principal, the school nurse, the school counselor, and us.
Attachment to IHP (1 page): this is the real "meat" of the IHP. It's a written page addressing the specific "nuts and bolts" of accommodations and how these are implemented (who is responsible). There are 4 areas: specific classroom modifications, other specific safety measures (cafeteria, field trips, etc), substitute teachers, and staff training.
"911 Procedures" (1 page): I've posted this on the school boards.
"Food Allergy Action Plan" (1 page): this is basically FAAN's form that was slightly modified. It has "minor symptoms" and "major symptoms" and what to do in each case. This is signed by parents and physician.
"Asthma Action Plan" (1 page): shows peak flow zones (green, red, yellow) and treatment for each. This is also signed by parent and physician.
The next 2 forms are required by the school district. The first is an asthma survey about triggers, student's knowledge, etc. The second form is a "medication authorization" that our physician fills out and signs stating all medications have been perscribed for the child.
Letter to parents: The last page is the letter that our principal mails home to the parents of our dd's classmates every fall. It explains PA, informs them of the district procedures that no food is allowed in this classoom, and requests parents to voluntarily refrain from sending peanut butter in their child's lunch.
I hope this is helpful. Since the plan was signed last year things have been great. So the IHP has worked well for us.
Please feel free to ask me any questions. It was beneficial for us to show our principal actual 504 plans/IHPs as models, but they were pretty hard to find.
Best of luck,

HI Gail!
Thanks for taking the time to write in such detail. I have been working on this 504 for days. I am glad to see you have 13 pages in your plan. So do I and I wasn't sure if it was too long. I thank you again. I need to finish the draft for the IHP. I will let you know how tomorrow goes...
Thanks again!
