    Ooh that gives me the willies....I have had parent threaten to go to OCR but never follow thru. Is it related to a 504 plan?

    No. I can't say I've even heard of such a place.

    Department of Education has an Office of Civil Rights where a parent (or I guess a student) may go when they feel their civil rights have been violated. Yes, if a parent did not believe that the student's 504 was maintained properly, s/he could sue. There are a couple of other reasons as well. I am submitting everything in the health folder and the EMR.

    On the plus side, I now can print out every single action and all my charting from the EMR so I did learn one new thing....

    Do you case manage? Chances are there are some accommodations that may not have been met, possibly in the classroom? Please keep us posted.

    I case manage a lot (not part of the job description but part of my life description; I do it like I breathe). I printed out all my emails including one where I doubled back on the counselor's email to stress how important it was to meet the accommodations. The AP who's handling this says that she thinks it's not this family's first rodeo with this... Thank you!
