Reporting a 504 violation?

<p>Are 504 plans reported by the school to the teachers? Or is it the student's job to report it to the teachers?</p>

<p>In my AP Chem class, my 504 plan was violated many times. The teacher threatened to give me a zero on my lab reports because he couldn't read my writing and yelled at me in front of the entire class. He probably docked me some points somewhere for my handwriting.</p>

<p>I think I want to get him in trouble. How do I report?</p>

<p>Your teacher should have been informed that you have a 504 plan, and should have been told what specific accommodations you were to be given in class. Possibilities that you need to investigate with your counselor and/or the school resource teachers include:</p>

<p>1) The teacher was never informed.</p>

<p>2) The teacher was given the wrong information or incomplete information.</p>

<p>3) The teacher was given complete information but just doesn't want to act on it.</p>

<p>You also need to work on your self-advocacy skills. The first time your teacher commented on your handwriting is when you should have spoken up about your 504, and/or arranged a meeting with the teacher and your counselor so that the three of you could sort out the best way accommodate your handwriting issue. Talk with your counselor about ways that you can be better at sticking up for yourself. You will face this kind of problem again in the future and you need better tools for dealing with it.</p>
