    504’s are extremely tough for staff to keep track of.  Students who are on 504 plans are tagged in our SIS like IEP, ELL & Gifted.  I would put 504 at the top of our list to be added to our student dashboard.

    To clarify to this, 504s are part of the new student app IF the 504 is created using Abre plans (not, necessarily in the SIS).

    A “material design” chip indicating a 504 on the land page of the student app would do this.

    @dave,

    As @Zach said, 504’s can be connected to the Students App via creating a Plan. Once a Plan is created and marked as complete, the Plan will be visible to staff/parents.

    Creating a chip in theory is easy (next to IEP and ELL) – the difficulty is we find most districts to not store a 504 field in the SIS.

    Thanks for the double quick response.  That’s a bummer most don’t store 504 in their SIS.  We’ll explore the student token option for next year.  The bold 504 Y/N view details up top would definitely be ideal.  I’ll start knocking on district doors for you to make sure everyone uses the SIS to record 504 if you’d like 🙂

    There is a code in our SIS that is used, even though the plan is another system. Could that be pulled? A lot of this ends up being a check on if you need a Manifestation Determination Review.

    Have a few teachers piloting right now and this came up as a request from one of them.

    We do indicate if a 504 exists in our SIS (even though the plan itself does not reside there).  I would think it could be added to the Abre_Students.txt file without too much trouble.

    Our district uses SameGoal to create and store 504s and RIMPs.  It would be nice if these were accessible in plans in PDF as well as a token was created for the student on the baseball card for easy teacher identification.  Student 504 identification is critical for the classroom teacher looking to make accommodations and modifications.

      @rateno-c Completely understand and this would be a great feature/integration. Completing this request requires SameGoal to complete some development (in short: that ball is in their court – assuming their customer base has requested such features). You may want to bring this up with Mike at Samegoal.

      Cheers!

    New to Abre and want to add my vote that the 504 icon should be one of the top priorities to add. We do have the 504 indicated in our SIS so that part wouldn’t be an issue. And letting districts know that is needed in order for the icon to show up is a workable solution.

    As far as providing teachers and staff the actual 504 plan – I understand that isn’t able to be pulled from Samegoal currently based on their permissions. I think we could get around that by uploading the pdf it in student notes for now until a better solution is achieved (ideally that samegoal would allow them to be pulled and then linked through a 504 icon).

    This feature will be rolling out shortly. In a few weeks we will make available a “504” chip at the top of a student profile. This status will be populated with data available in the SIS. We will follow up when officially released!

    It has been suggested that an additional “bubble” for 504 be added to the student “baseball” card.  When working with this student whether for behavior, assessment, or schedules it would be nice to know if the student has a 504 as well as having an IEP or gifted status.  This would save time in accessing another system to see if the student has a 504 before making any instructional decisions for the student.

    I have also heard this suggestion from districts I work with! Great idea!
