Kacey: Child is 7th grader in CA, has had multiple diagnosis, but District says he does not qualify for spec ed. They gave him a 504 plan, then took away more than half his accommodations. They gave him an assessment and said he does not qualify for Spec Ed. I filed for an IEE and the District filed due process (coming up soon). Our child had an IEP (speech and Lang) but the district strong armed us in giving it up in exchange for an extensive 504 plan then takes away the 504 plan except for a few accommodations. How do we get the district to give him services? I did file a complaint with OCR but they take years to investigate a matter. The District recently created their own 504 plan without our consent and implemented it, they claim they do not need parents consent – is this true? They also claim that our child does not need services since our child is an A-B student, is that true?
