Homeschooling and 504 plan. Is it possible?

Would I have to tell them at the 504 meeting that we are homeschooling? Or can I leave that for later? Im worried they wont give him services if they know he is going to be homeschooling.

We are in NY

A 504 is about access to a Free and Appropriate Public Education (FAPE). As long as your child remains in the public school setting s/he will continue with the agreed upon 504 services provided. Once your child is withdrawn from public school, the 504 would no longer be needed. Keep copies, if you ever end up back in public school and the 504 would be needed, your old version would be a solid foundation for the new 504 plan.

Our Answer:
Hello! Thank you for sharing your important question.
A 504 plan refers to a written management plan outlining how your school (or other institution) will address the individual needs of your son and allow him to participate safely and equally alongside his peers during all normal facets of the school day. Creating this plan involves the participation of school officials such as the school nurse, teachers, food service personnel, coaches, counselors and others. It is an important process that would help to assure the safety of your son during his daily school routine. More information regarding a 504 plan can be found here.
If you are planning to homeschool your son, it may not be worth going through all the trouble to create such a thorough plan. However, if you are still debating whether or not to homeschool him, researching a 504 plan would give you more information to decide which option is best for your family. This article about food risks in the classroom could also help give you some insight.
There may also be the option of an Individualized Education Plan or IEP. This article describes the difference between a 504 and an IEP and may help you decide which option to go with.
