I agree with Sarah Maddie's mom. I think with any forum we post when frustrated and not necessarily when things are going smoothly. In our case, our school nurse and principal called a 504 meeting within 1 week of my son's diagnosis. They were very proactive, and helped me understand what his rights and their obligations were. My school has always allowed changes in his management that were not specifically articulated in 504, things that we learned from living with diabetes for 6 mos that we would never have known initially, i.e. how gym, recess, test taking effect his BG, how much his management has changed (injections to pump). We will formally add those changes in now for next year. I would think that if your school really "gets diabetes" there should be no battle. Good luck!
