Marybeth: My daughter is 15 and in 10th Grade in NJ. She has missed about 25 days due to illness. Most of the days are due to vomiting, diarrhea and fatigue. She has doctors notes for 90% of the days. Her pediatrician requested a 504 in October but it was denied. She is presently seeing a gastroenterologist to figure out what is wrong. This problem is being compounded by the school administrators telling her they are taking away all of her credits for this year and don’t care if she graduates in 4 or 5 years. She is also working with a therapist at this time. All 3 doctors are requesting a 504 once again. How do I go about having her absences excused and getting her the credits to graduate on time? I have another meeting with the school this Friday 1/13/16 and would like to be prepared.
