Some of you may remember that last year, along about February, we had an IEP meeting, and the school's proposal was to further reduce Wee's day from 5 hours to 2 because he could not maintain in the mainstream classroom. We countered that proposal by making a case for him to be in the resource room, and that's what we got. Although Wee stayed at school and had much more success, it was obvious the SpEd teacher was exhausted with it. She was not keeping Wee engaged and he slept A LOT of days. At the meeting to determine ESY, they threw out their "new idea" for this school year, and this "new idea" was for him to be entirely mainstreamed. They planned to cut his sped minutes in half, keep him in school for 4 hours instead of 5, and transition him 10-13 times a day in those 4 hours, between 10-13 different people. And that plan was lead by SpEd. We *got* that sped was tired. We *got* that she was trying to get him out of her space so much. What we didn't get was that she wanted him out enough to quit because of Wee. I've heard several times now that she said she'd "rather stick a fork in her eye than babysit Wee for another year." The last time I heard it? Was from the aid that worked in her room last year. This is about the 5th incident I've heard that on the streets about my kiddo. How nice.
