Request a meeting with the teacher and guidance counselor. Depending on where you live you may be able to request testing in writing to expedite it. If the RTI process is in place where you live it's not as simple as just having the child tested. RTI takes months, but it very thoroughly evaluates the child's performance while giving them the extra help they need at the same time. You can request they place him in RTI.

If he has a 504 plan he can get almost the same protection and services as he would with an IEP. What exactly do you want the IEP for?
Answer by maxswolfsuit at 3:13 PM on Nov. 14, 2010
Ask for a 504 meeting and see if he can receive resource help just based on the 504. He doesn't have to have a IEP to be put in a smaller setting or get help in the classroom, that can be put in his 504 plan. That said, self contained ESE classes are starting to more or less disappear. For years kids have been pulled out of regular classes only to fall farther and farther behind. It seems like the small class would be better, but with kids of different levels and disabilities sometimes they end up getting less help than they do in a gen ed class. Your best bet is to see if he can support in the class. Someone to come to the regular class and help him. That's not always an option, but it is a great situation if it can be arranged.
