Is nowhere near over, we meet again in 2 weeks to hopefully finish up. Mostly, it went well. Even the dumb____ principal wants to put on paper what is working. The sped teacher and his para are drafting the BIP for the next meeting. YAY!!! One thing - the attorney absolutely refused to put "consistent" or "dedicated" para in the IEP. He also refused to give me a notice of action refused for that request because its not a "valild, do-able request". His theory is that the aid could get married and move and that would then make them liable to somehow keep her. I said I get that and am not being unreasonable about it, he could even put his legalese in there to explain something like that, but he refused. But, can he really refuse to give a notice of action refused???
