ok i was floored last wk by the post about unenrolling a difficult child but now i see how schools can be about these things. the school called today and asked me to come pick difficult child up to take him home for the day. this is the third time they have done this. the last time it was right after having an initial mtg with-the sw, school psychiatric, principle ,teacher and us(me and husband). i'm pissed. if they would just let him cool off he is usually fine and can go on but the princple feels he is too angry to go back in the classroom when i can see his anger is with-her for not letting go back,Know what I mean?? i had a friend who took a Special Education class about IDEA tell me that it is against the law to remove a child from academic time for misbehavior. is that so or what are the loopholes. cause he spit on her can she deem him dangerous and make me come get him? i sent my letter asking for a mde just before i got to the school (i was working at my church across the street from the school when they called)and i told the principle that i sent the letter. she gave me a look that either she didn't understand what i meant by mde or that she didn't think i knew enough to ask for one. so i have a ? the principle wants to meet with-me on tues morning. do i go or do i wait for the letter to be received and follow those guidelines of communication. i just don't want him taken away from school work by spending hours in the office sitting doing dot to dots(this has happened 5 times) or me having to take him home where he gets the idea that he can cause trouble and then come home if he wants. to be honest he was upset cuz she told him he could get kicked out of school and he yelled at her "then how am i supposed to learn!" gotta love my boy! he actually loves school when he is not having a meltdown and had a wonderful wk until friday(he always has a meltdown on the fridays am at the school for a pta mtg with-the principle, like yesterday). ok i find i am rambling and need to vent. as i am learn more and more from you gals and others at school i need to get used to it. but i will tell you one thing they better not think i am a push over. i am smart, love to do research and have no qualms about contacting outside people for the better interest of my child and the others in my community. i will be a fair with-them as i can but don't f#%k with-me just to see if you can!
