So, Emma will be going to middle school in the fall after being homeschooled for all of her elementary years. So, I had my first meeting for a 504 today. I know it will be a long process so I started it now. It's crazy because even though we all know the law "reads" that she's qualified, the school system has to go through this process, and one of the steps is a federally mandated "observation", so they have to come to my house and observe Emma. I told them she works mostly independently, so they said if its just her watching a math video or taking an online Latin lesson, that's fine. It's crazy but it's started. Because she's in 5th grade, I have to start this process for qualification with her home elementary school and then write the specific 504 plan with the middle school she'll end up going to. Again, crazy, but it is what it is. My goal is for her to manage herself as independently as possible with as little teacher and nurse assistance as necessary and accommodations for out of range blood sugars affecting tests for grades and state testing.
