Accommodations: 504 ACCOMMODATION

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Julie: Help me to understand that in a Section 504 plan, how is having a student placed in a co-taught classroom as an accommodation a service driven by an IEP goal. This service has been provided to the student with an IEP, now moving forward the district is fighting it. Thanks

when a student is noncompliant regarding an accommodation (in this case a piece of technology), can it legally be removed from the IEP? How does one go about it? The parent is in agreement. Yes, it’s in his best interest and is a good suggestion, but the student will NOT utilize the equipment (middle school age)

As a special education teacher working as a collaboration teacher with the general education teachers in both math and English, I work with some 504 plan and IEP students in the same classroom. Working as a collaboration teacher, I am the one who accommodates and makes sure we (the general education teacher and I) follow the IEP for the specific student. By law, we need to make sure that they receive the right support that is written into their IEPs. In this case, the student with the 504 plan have supports implemented in their plan that requires them to seek guidance from a trusted adult or staff when he or she feels like they need….a break, to take a walk…etc…because they are frustrated or overwhelmed. As a collaboration teacher, I am also the “support provider” to the student.

Could you please clarify the chronology? I’m confused seeing you talk of both a 504 plan and an IEP. Thanks.
