Things To Know When You Are A 504 Case Manager



This year I am the Case Manager for four 504 students.  That means I keep track of student 504 meetings, reporting student needs to teachers, communicating with parents, and basically keeping up to date with what is going on academically with these students.

Here are some things to do when acting as a case manager for a student with a 504 plan.

1.  Review their 504 plan.  Note things like special alerts, the determining factor (the disability) for their 504 plan, Their program (classroom) accommodations and testing accommodations.  

2.  Make a cheat sheet for teachers that they can keep as a go to guide.  Here is one that I created.



3.  If they have testing accommodations, make sure they have a copy of the 504 plan in your school testing room.  In our school we have a staff member who mans this room all day long to provide testing accommodations for students.

4.  Know when the annual meeting date will be.

5.  Set up any parent meeting that may be written into the 504 plan.  Even though this is only our second day of school, we already had 2 parent-teacher conferences so parents could share with the teachers helpful tips about their children.

6.  Be aware of any special services a student may receive--speech services, use of scribe, use of iPad, OT, PT, counseling, etc.

7.  Keep in contact with parents.  I am planning on reporting to parents every two weeks with a check in of how classes are going, upcoming assignments parents should be on the lookout for, questions or comments from the teachers that they would like to share, etc.

8.  Keep non core teachers in the loop.  For those teachers that are not a part of a team, but work with your students, make sure you distribute and gather info from them as well.  For our school this includes our PE, health, and AIS teachers.  


   9.  Check in periodically with your students.  See how things are going.  Ask them about their classes and how they think are doing.  Don't forget to review report card grades, as well as attendance and behavior reports if necessary.

10.  Keep a folder for each student and keep copies of all notes and reports that you send or receive in case you need to refer back to them.  

11.  Enjoy being the case manager.  This is an important role and you can have a significant impact on a student and their overall school progress.  Keep positive about your assignment and positive things will happen.

    1. Many thanks for sharing here some things to do when acting as a case manager for a student with a 504 plan. Students can face academic track race for a variety of reasons, so it's important for teachers to be familiar with central laws and educational plans that help ensure their special needs are met. To help students with disabilities succeed in school, teachers or personal statement tutor may need to modify the tutorial room environment, adjust their coaching strategies, or make other modifications. Other tasks include calculating students' progress and interactive successfully with parents.

  4. We have a son on a 504. We recently had a meeting for the 504. Last year it was cancelled from the weather and never rescheduled. Finally, NOW, it's all a buzz. I scheduled a PT conf. so that all the teachers would be more cohesive. The counselor attended, and thankfully so, because she defended my son's situation. The teachers were really pursuing the "irresponsible kid direction..." Well, yeah... he's 12. You starting this at the beginning of the year should be the goal for every school. We are now at the middle of the school year, fast approaching state testing. It's crazy to have to argue about scribes and enlarged papers... It's in the 504. Frustrating!

In contrast to great many pieces of writing I've looked through on the matter, the one has new thoughts.
