I've been fine with the health plan we've had in place for Deirdre. But I always said, one screw-up and it's 504 time. The screw-up happened. Both our kids went skating today. Deirdre has a cell phone that she takes with her for emergencies. Today she didn't have it. Rick, however, did. He took it out to give to her while on the field trip. He had his phone taken away and got one Oops! card removed. My son is devastated. He tried to help his sister and got punished for it. The only time he's ever had a disciplinary problem was his first kindergarten year: he got aggravated and threw a pencil (not at anyone: just threw it). He didn't tell me until Monday morning because he was so ashamed. The Oops! cards have caused a direct problem with Deirdre: she tends to talk a lot when she's high, and when she does, she gets a card taken away. They get 5 cards a year: after all five are gone, it's a countdown to a principal office trip. Deirdre lost all five of hers already this year. I think this could have been prevented. So it starts. I spoke with our 504 coordinator, who wants to meet after the first of the year. Fine. But he wants to update the health plan instead of going into a 504. I'm not happy about this. I want her covered under 504. He said they are held just as responsible for the health plan as a 504. I don't know if that's right: from everything I've read on here, it doesn't sound right. I want an eligibility hearing for a 504. I don't want a health plan. Mama bear is out, and she's grouchy.
