I attended a meeting at school with all his teachers, Program director and principal. English: Of the first 5 days of school he was removed from this class, or part of it 4 days. I was not aware of this. I looked at the Program Director and said, "isn't it written on the IEP that I be notified and it be recorded of any class removal?" She said it was stated if he was sent to the office. I said any class removal. So, I asked where he went? to the hallway. And.... NONE of his teachers were aware he had an IEP!!! I was concerned about this and asked when we wrote the IEP if ALL of his teachers this year would be aware of the IEP. I asked when we had a meeting prior to the start of school, I was told YES. SO,,NONE of his teachers knew. Second. One of the teachers made a comment that has been bouncing around in my head. I want to reply, but don't know exactly how. I would appreciate any advice. Teacher stated that "they" are happily surprised with difficult child. They saw him in the office last year and they are surprised with him. (he is doing good most of the time) They, meaning house teachers, or academic teachers. I am not happy with that statement. So they are saying they already had judged him. They had a predetermined impression of difficult child before he ever entered their classrooms. They did not KNOW why he was in the office. I am sure they heard him raise his voice, but they do not know the situation (many of which were not his fault, and any adult would be upset when put in that situation). I want to address this with the teachers, but not quite sure what to say. When they feel this way about him he is not starting a fresh year, he is starting in a hole and having to dig himself out. Teachers were not aware of his anxiety. Used him for an example which of course set him off. (one reason for removal). should I be addressing this?
