Ryan has one teacher that just absolutely, positively will NOT communicate with me until she's had it up past her eyeballs with him. I've asked by phone, email, notes sent in his folder, numerous times to be notified immediately if he's not completing his work or if his behavior is worse than usual but all I ever get is "I'm really too busy for all that." After our last phone call I had understood if he flat out refused to participate in an activity that counted towards a grade I would be notified immediately. Yesterday in his folder was a note saying that he had refused to participate in literary circles for the 2nd week in a row. I was absolutely seeing red when I read that note. Maybe because I was already so ticked off I couldn't see straight I misinterpreted her intended tone but she usually has an even, although messy handwriting. Yesterday's note was scrawled: "SIGN AND RETURN!!! This is the <u>2nd</u> week in a row this has happened!!!" I knew immediately I wasn't going to just sign and return but rather would write a note on the form. I didn't write it last night because I was so ticked I decided I should sleep on it and try to calm down. I thought I was calmer this morning so I wrote the note. My hubby said that my note definitely gave away my frame of mind. We got to school early this am and I went in with Ryan and we went straight to the principal's office. I knew she couldn't see me this morning but I wanted to schedule an appointment in person and not be put off on the phone. I briefly explained what was going on and I now have a meeting scheduled with the principal and the teacher from h-e-double hockey sticks tomorrow morning at 9. Ryan has a letter from his p/doctor stating what 504 accomodations he's to be afforded but they're telling me since he's working at a 3rd grade level in 2nd grade and getting almost straight A's still that he doesn't need 504 accomodations. Can or should I ask for an IEP based on his anxiety disorder tomorrow or do I need something from his p/doctor? We're seeing the p/doctor tomorrow evening. I'm just so frustrated and angry this morning I could spit nails.
