difficult child was told by his school at an ARD meeting on 10-23-07 that "this was not the place for him". We came down hard on them at that ARD meeting saying that not enough had been done at that school before they moved him to another school in a Behavior Service Class. The BSC would be an environment where he would be with a group of 4-6 kids all day long in a classroom with a teacher and an assistant. They use the level system and the kids have to work there way through the levels and then gradually they are mainstreamed. Once fully mainstreamed, difficult child could go back to his homeschool. We take his T-doctor with us to every ARD and I can not tell you the stupid comments they made about my son. I mean that his emotional problems cause the behavior problems. They just kept focusing on the behavioral problems. We convinced them to revise his BIP and decided to have another ARD on 12-4-07 to re-evaluate his progress. Fast forward to the next ARD. Of course the cruddy BIP was put in place but not as we or the t-doctor wanted them to do it. The teachers were never consistant and there were several times that we had to either take difficult child home or come pick him up from school. When we got to the ARD we found that the school had been documenting every little thing difficult child had done wrong during that 6 weeks. I wasn't even aware of half of the things that he did. I was floored when they called the Director of Special Education into the meeting along with the XISD prychiatrist that had sat in on the last ARD ( she agreed that more could be done before moving him to a BSC). We knew when we saw the director that we were up the creek without a paddle. They had even set up an ARD at the new school they wanted him to attend to "ARD him in"! So FF to today when we were supposed to visit the new school BS class. We get there and they tell us that this class at this school was just for 1-3rd grades! They didn't know how there was a miscommunication but they would like us to visit the other school that has a BS class for 3-5th grades. So we go there and the school is horrible. It is in a horrible part of town and the kids seemed to have control over the class...not the teachers. They are really pushing us to keep difficult child with peers his own age but I just HATE the school. I like the other school but he would be with younger kids all day long. I am so mad at XISD for all of the stuff they have put us through and now we have an impossible decision to make. what do I do? Do we have any rights? Help!
