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>Do you have a disability that impairs your ability to write legibly?</p>

Yes. It's in my 504 plan.</p>

<p>What is 504? sorry</p>

<p>And if you physically can't write properly and your teacher knows this, he is the ultimate **********. It's like making fun of someone with a broken leg and a fractured kneecap on the other leg because they can't run fast.
If he didn't know this, then why would you not say that while he's yelling at you?</p>

Because I thought the school gives out 504 plans.</p>

<p>Ok... if you can't write legibly then why are you handwriting things at all? If you are being forced to handwrite, this problem should have been taken care of long ago. </p>

<p>You need to report it to the school, specifically a counselor or the disability management person there, if there is one.</p>

<p>And yes, 504 and IEP plans should be given directly to teachers.</p>

<p>He says you can't type lab reports. It would be difficult, anyway, since there are numbers involved.</p>

<p>Yes, but if your 504 says you can't write, he can't force you to write. </p>

<p>And yes, it is difficult, but would you rather lose the points?</p>

<p>You're right. All my other teachers let my type certain things if I asked. Usually, though, they just read my handwriting. It's not THAT bad. The teacher is just somewhat lazy and mean.</p>

<p>I just didn't want to be a pushy person. I'm going to be a jerk from now on.</p>

<p>^It's not you being a jerk, it's you being assertive. Don't think you are being a jerk, when the teacher is the one who is.</p>

<p>Yeah... I can be a real jerk online sometimes, but it's the exact opposite in real life. I never want to inconvenience people or make them take extra trouble.</p>

<p>I'm too nice and timid.</p>

<p>Yeah, you're a jerk online. </p>

<p>But you need to talk to a counselor. You have a disability, not an inconvenience. End of story.</p>

<p>Whatever. It's easy to come across and/or be a jerk online.</p>

<p>No, choco, you have no idea...</p>

<p>^I do not recognize the poster...But I usually give the benefit of the doubt. Perhaps I shouldn't in this case, I don't know.</p>

YOU'RE the jerk.</p>

<p>^ Yeah, that's why I bothered to help you. Because I'm a jerk. Whatever Saugus.</p>

<p>About 95% of CC users are jerks. It's a real ******y site</p>

<p>Ah TCBH, you're alive. Lol.</p>

<p>I am now, but this 18 unit schedule will be the death of me. Just 14 days until my last final...</p>
