Every so often I hear from people who want to rent planes and skywrite about their school districts, and every so often I hear from people who want to poke their school districts with sharp things, and a lot of the time the people in the latter group are frustrated because of difficulties about their kids' 504 plans: either getting them or enforcing them.
The law is clear that severe food allergies are among the conditions that entitle kids to special accommodations in public schools. But that's small consolation if your school district doesn't agree with how the law is to be interpreted, or fights with you about how severe your child's allergies are, or works with you to come up with a good plan but doesn't follow through to make sure it's used every day. (My own daughter is a little ways off from starting kindergarten, so dealing with school administrators at all is something I'm not used to doing.)
What about you? Do you have any horror stories, or even mundane everyday "it worked out beautifully" stories?
