Sample 504 plans for HS - any samples here?
« on: May 24, 2016, 05:22:40 AM »
I would love to look at a few sample 504 plans for high school-aged students.  Thanks!

We don't use a 504 but we do have some accommodations in an IHCP.   

:heart: Our high school nurse started writing these and putting them on record before we even met her and now, she will email DD and I in June and ask if we would like to change anything for the following year!  She is so very proactive and supportive!  She also words things in ways I agree with.  After years of chasing people down and negotiating - it has been a breath of fresh air to sit back and let her be proactive!

They include:  (Rats, it's a PDF because it has signatures, I can copy but not edit so I will highlight due to DD's name used often)

States meds DD carries daily
States meds stored in nurse's office
States DD will remind any nurse treating her about her Bacitracin allergy (because it is unusual)
Teachers will not single DD out with reference to her allergies
DD will carry wipes to clean surfaces if needed in her classrooms
DD is allowed to leave and report to school nurse anytime she is uncomfortable or feels unsafe with a situation in a classroom without repercussions
Parents will be informed of any school event, class event, or activity where food may be served.  Accommodations will be discussed and mutually agreed upon to insure inclusion.
DD will inform parents if she is to participate in an activity
Teachers can and will contact DD's parents to research classroom materials or supplies to determine safety (ie science lab materials).  Teachers must give adequate time (a minimum of 3 days) to research the safety of material or supplies prior to use.
Prior to field trips, accommodations will be discussed with parents and DD and mutually agreed upon.  The accommodations may or may not include parent participation, but will include total inclusion for DD.
DD will be given the opportunity to purchase safe school lunches through meetings and planning with the school cafeteria manager.
Prior to the start of school, the school nurse will ensure the interior of DD's locker is cleaned with soap and water to remove any traces of food and pets.
Prior to the start of school, the school nurse will provide ingredients list, manufacturer, and manufacturer pone number of the soap that will be used throughout the school so DD's parents can verify safety of use.
School administration will instruct and inform any staff responsible for DD's classes of her allergies and necessary safeguards.
Parents and DD will inform any coaches and activity leaders of her allergies and medical needs.


High School has been different and so much easier.  The only time I got my back up was a Biology Lab in which the pre-lab had not been updated and it was sent home to include burning nuts!  Turns out it had been changed to crackers due to allergies but that cause some grief and stress for a day.  Other than that DD is treated so well and adult like and some of her teachers ask her private questions out of curiosity and interest.

Even Prom was handled so very well.


So when we get the email from the school nurse this June, I will ask her to add something about school evacuations.

Hope that is helpful!

Thank you so much!  I really appreciate it.  I'm amazed you have such a wonderful school nurse.  You are fortunate.  That's a great plan.

At some point I can include ours. But one accommodation that was in DS' 504 for high school was transportation for school trips. He is on the traveling Speech team, whichb goes to tournaments in NYC, Boston, Chicago, and Orlando, and has also qualified for and traveled to national tournaments. He wasn't on the team as a freshman when we had the accommodation added. It was one that developed from on in middle school, but this one affected plane travel.

Since he was a sophomore, DS has been able to fly separately from the team (which actually was an awesome thing in tends of planning for independence, as he flew alone). One time his coach bought his ticket on the peanutty airline they were traveling on, and I was able to point to the 504 plan. I love this coach. I consider her a friend, but all it took was pointing to the 504 so that we did not eat the cost of the ticket (and fortunately the school was able to use it for another kid). But that accommodation saved us a few hundred bucks.
Me: Sesame, shellfish, chamomile, sage
DS: Peanuts

That's a topic I had not thought about before this. Thankfully peanuts are not an issue anymore. We had the meeting already but I'd still like to see more HS 504 plans.  Thanks!

I think we are adding something as to how/where/with whom (likely nurse) to store complete change of clothing (locker too small).  Have had a food-thrown-at incident in cafeteria on more than one occasion (one very recent) and I think I want this covered in case needed and I or DH cannot get change of clothing there to school quickly.

Believe it or not, we have had to deal with birthday celebrations this year for our DS senior!  (Newspaper / yearbook class and classroom . . . because it was a "tradition". 
Um, nope.  GONE!)

Food-free zone (at least) in library. 

Cleanliness of school and/or how dealt with if school used for voting.



Is this where I blame iPhone and cuss like an old fighter pilot's wife?

Thank you, Ajas.  We had spare clothes each year until this year.  maybe we still should.  He has almost no FAs left, though. 

Good for you getting food free zones, etc.  :)

For those with kids in high school, who is authorized to admininster epipen if needed? Nurse? Nurse and Student? Nurse, Student, and Teachers?

 Current plan wording is for nurse or student to administer. Teacher will administer on field trips only. I don't like this. Thanks for input.

WOW, I don't like that either!  Do they not have other Epipen designated givers?  Are the teachers refusing to be trained? 

ALL of our staff in our schools are trained on Epipen so that there should, in theory, be an adult who can administer who is very nearby or co-located with student . . . student self-carries . . . nurse's office is at far end of school away from cafeteria, so this is very important for us.  Also, all of our subs are supposed to have been trained AND our bus drivers.

If your teacher is trained to admin on field trips, then the teacher should also be listed as supposed to administer ANYWHERE if student cannot or will not (incapable / not thinking straight / too fearful) . . . .

 And in high school there are many teachers since many subjects . . . so there should be many who are trained, yes?

Exactly what ajasfolks said, plus all proctors for testing like PSAT and SAT are also trained or if one is not part of the regular school staff, DD is placed in a room with someone who is trained.
