School Health Nursing Services Role in Health Care"[/b]


[b]"Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973"[/b]

Quote from article:
[/i]"The school nurse is positioned to identify potentially eligible students and, when determined eligible, develop and implement accommodation plans in conjunction with students, families, and Section 504 teams. Section 504 accommodation plans should focus on eliminating barriers to academic programs and social development and fostering opportunities for students to succeed in school and beyond."[/i]

wow. just think. The possibility that [b]not just the parent(s)[/b] bear the total responsibility of helping to identify students elligible for a 504? Should a school expect all parents to be both knowledgeable and capable of advocating on behalf of their child necessarily? Which, by the way, really makes me raise an eyebrow when I hear of schools and their agents who discourage parents and possibly set up "roadblocks" to the same end. Sigh.

The school my dd will be attending next year has several PA students and they have never written a 504 for this. I'm not sure if they are against 504's or if they just don't think it's necessary. The school nurse knows nothing about 504 plans. She writes health care plans and that is it. Apparently she has not read this. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]
