Kris: My son will be a high school freshman in August. He has always participated in mainstream classes and is scheduled to do so in high school. He already has an IEP in place at the high school with accommodations to take breaks as needed to manage stress due to his Autism. Last year, at his middle school, he successfully participated on the cross country team. His coach was also his Algebra teacher and therefore knew what his IEP accommodations were and honored them during practices and meets. The high school cross country coach will not have any academic interaction with my, his only exposure to him will be through athletics. My question is: Are athletic coaches required to honor IEP accommodations?
