My almost 7 year old son has been having some trouble in school. His issues are that he is often confused and often stares off into space missing directions from the teacher. Last year the kindergarten teacher was alarmed enough to call a meeting of the I&RS team who came into the class to watch him. They were also disturbed by his behavior and decided that he needed to be evaluated. That meeting was on 5/15/10. After that meeting my son got very sick and was in the hospital for 15 days and out of school for 3 weeks. School ended on 6/18. Since the 5/15 meeting I have not heard anything from the school. I did email the assistant principal to ask for an update at the end of school. I also advised that my son was on steroids and would be until July 17th. The response was that they would just start the evaluation next school year. School started on 9/2 and I haven't heard anything from the school. I emailed the principal (assistant principal has retired) and the head of special services yesterday (9/13) but haven't heard back. So, my longwinded question is... can anyone offer any advice on "my rights". I thought the evaluation was supposed to start 15 days after the I&RS meeting. And that I am supposed to be told what they will be testing. Also that summer recess counted for timing for an evaluation. I am feeling very blown off by the school and don't want to start off being adversarial with them but need them to understand that I'm not going away. What would your next step be?
