Hi,
Is it reasonable to have parent concerns documented in the 504 Plan? Administrator documented strengths, but not concerns for upcoming year. She said “We don’t know the 6th grade team yet.” Then why does administrator ask the parents their concerns and not document on the 504 Plan? She asks for students strengths and documented that.
I can’t find any information out there stating if administrator has to document or can leave out parent concerns.
Thank you.

Absolutely! The parent can send the principal & district 504 coordinator a written document with their concerns, & any requests they have to be in the child’s file. They need to monitor the child’s progress in academics, & other areas. Now or in the future, if there is only limited progress, the parents can request a special education evaluation. If they qualify for special ed, the parent and child have more rights that can assist them.

I believe the regs just say it has to be a committee of knowledgeable persons. OCR has a 504 FAQ that is somewhat helpful, check it out: http://www2.ed.gov/about/offices/list/ocr/504faq.html
