    Frequently Asked 504 Questions

    Do you have a Ranger who is currently receiving 504 services at CTHS?

    If you have a current 504 student, please know that all 504 plans roll up with your student and are implemented on the first day of school. If there is a problem or if ou need assistance with any accommodation, please email your concern to me at mbirdwell@ems-isd.net with your concern to that I can follow up for your family. 

    What if my Ranger is an incoming freshmen?

    Not a problem! If your student was receiving 504 services at one of our middle school campuses, that plan rolls up with your student and is immediately implemented on the first day of school.

    What if my Ranger transferred into the district from a school outside of EMS ISD?

    No worries here either, once we get your Ranger's records I input the 504 plan that you had at your previous school and notify your Ranger's teachers of the new plan.  Please know that there could be some lag time between when you register and when we receive your students records. 

    What if I think my Ranger needs 504 services?

    That is not a problem either, please contact me at mbirdwell@ems-isd.net with your concerns and we will being the referral process.
