Right, wrong, or indifferent, I am hanging on to my complaints....for now. I met with the board president and the superintendent. Board pres couldn't give me much, but the super is the one who seems to 'get' what Wee needs more than some other people on his so-called "team". She wants compensory education for him, para support when in mainstream academics, and sped teacher education for reading, writing, and math. Now why can't the people who are SUPPOSED to be handling this GET that??? Anyway, met with super and she met with the principal and sped dir. I reported how sped dir has more than once come to a meeting telling me "this is what the district has to offer, take it or leave it", I reported how communication is non-existent, and how principal is working to pull back support before restoring full-day education. Super had apparently been lead to believe Wee is mentally impaired, and when she found out he has a high-average or higher iq, she was very displeased and asked me to withhold the complaints and she would handle it. She did. The next day, at our meeting, a plan was made to extend the day, NOT in mainstream, and WITH support, all talk of removing para support had ceased, and a plan for increased communication was put into place, and ESY is being discussed, with emphasis on truly building an educational/catch-up program for Wee. I am still itching to file, but I have a year...if the need arises again. I got what we needed again, and I guess that's the point.
