Special Services Plans


The start of the school year brings excitement and anticipation of things to come. Students and teachers alike have the opportunity to start fresh. One of the roles or our Special Services Team at Putnam County is to write and implement IEP’s and 504’s for students. These two plans have similarities, but also have some distinct differences.

An IEP plan is part of the Individual with Disabilities Act(IDEA) served under the Department of Education. A 504 plan is part of Civil Rights-Rehabilitation Act of 1973 served under the Office of Civil Rights. They both are in place for students to have access to the best public education possible. If you have any questions about any of these plans at Putnam County contact the Special Services Office.
