Youngest just called me upset because my grandson's school called her to inform her they were having a Child Study Meeting this morning at 11 am. She told them she didn't know anythying about it, she'd received no notice. Their reply was that "one should have gone home in his backpack." She said she had NOT seen anything. They told her they were going ahead with the meeting, and would inform her of their findings and recommendations after the fact. She definitely should have been part of this meeting.. she has lots of input to share ... but too late now, the meeting has already happened. Youngest is a bit panicked, and confused. It's been a long time... but I know that there is a requirement for a written notice to parents about such a meeting. Is sending a notice home in a backpack sufficient? (He's in kindergarten, who sends important legal notices home with a kindergartner?!) I did some Googling but also wanted to ask the knowledgable parents here... recommendations for next steps for her? The Child Study was initiated by his guidance counselor, by the way, at Youngest's request. Grandson definitely needs one and some services ... but she needs to be involved in the process. And she's a difficult child herself, of course -- so I'm walking the line of helping but not enabling. I do want to give her advice, though .
