Section 504: REQUESTING 504 PLAN, SAMPLE LETTER Posted on 01/29/2016 by Community — 4 Comments ↓ Tracy: My friend has a son with anxiety issues and separation attachment diagnosis and is looking for a sample letter to request a 504 plan at her school, which we all know- schools do not like to do. Is there a sample letter ?
Tracy – you will always get good advice from Jill and Chuck. I also wanted to mention that Chapters 23 and 24 in Wrightslaw: From Emotions to Advocacy are all about writing letters and include 16 sample letters. Take a look at how these sample letters can be used to document a problem, request records, request a meeting, request an evaluation, etc. I think you’ll find these chapters helpful. Be sure to go to the Letters page on Wrightslaw for more information.
There are probably hundreds out there, if you google them. But here is a simple and polite one that should do the trick: http://www.kidsgetarthritistoo.org/pdfs/educational-rights-tool-kit/sample-parent-letter-to-school-administrator.pdf.
The parent may elect to include documentation of the diagnoses (this is NOT required, but can be helpful). If so, a sentence indicating such would be a good addition.
Great sample letter! This was very helpful, to the point and effective in requesting a meeting.
