Our staffing meeting was this morning at the school. I turned in my letter I had written and was denied another FIE. It was explained to me that the only reason that they do FIE is to determine eligibility for special education services. Aaron was already receiving special education services. The ARD committee would determine a new placement. It was determined that for now he would do half day programming from 8:30-1. He would receive more support in his general ed classroom and this would start today. So I took him to school after the meeting and dropped him off. They called me at 12:30 and asked me to come and pick him up. Apparently he had gone into the restroom, stripped out of all of his clothes, and streaked in the hallway. The head of Special Education told me that they would not take Aaron back to school. He would be now on Homebound instruction. This means that I will get a teacher for 4 hours a week in my home. I am sitting here crying as I type this... 4 HOURS????? I feel like the school has simply given up on him!!! What can I do now?? <span style="color: #FF0000">Edit: 12/6</span> I got an ARD packet from the school this afternoon. They are not going to do another FIE until 9/08!!! This is their 3 year deadline. I had signed the papers saying that he could have half day instruction and the Special Education lady went in and changed everything to homebound and used the SAME SIGNATURE!!! Isn't that Illegal? I was totally wrong about 4 hours a week...it's only TWO! TWO HOURS A WEEK OF HOMEBOUND???? Are they kidding?? Dropped all of his Occupational Therapist (OT) and Speech because he no longer qualifies due to no longer being a full time student.. Again using the same signature from the EARLIER ARD paperwork. Oh and get this...he is still required to take the state standardized testing!! WHAT?? Here is what it says in the Deliberations Appendix B Items highlighted in red were added after the original ARD meeting yesterday morning and my original signature was simply PASTED to agree to it. The purpose of this ARD is to address placement. Members present: parents, Administrator, general educator, special educator, LSSP, CSSP. This meeting started out as a staffing, however parents waived their 5 days notice so that we could proceed to ARD. Mom contacted the school to schedule a meeting concerning changes in Aaron's behavior. Mom has been working closely with Aaron's doctors to adjust his medications. He is currently only taking seizure medicine, and nothing for ADHD. He is extremely off task and has been having accidents. Teachers and parents have seena recent change in his behaviros. LSSP stressed consistency between home and school. Visual prompts utilizing pictures is recommended for use with Aaron. Discussed the future possibility of in home parent training. The committee agreed that Aaron will attend school half day until 1pm. Special transportation was offered but parents declined. No other changes are being made to Aaron's schedule at this time. Administrator requested Mrs. Click provide notes for Aaron's absences so that they may be excused. All members signed in agreement. <span style="color: #FF0000">[/color][size:10][/size]Aaron began his modified schedule after the ARD meeting on this date 12/5/07. Teachers reported Aaron had significant behavioral issues during the day including constant motion, inability to focus, or slow down, picking his lips and nose until they bled, and coming out of the restroom completely naked. After conferring with Administration, the LSSP, the teachers, and parent, it was decided that Aaron could best be served through homebound services- at least until his medical management is under control. Homebound services will be provided 60 minutes two times per week. Mom agreed to include this placement change in the same ARD dated 12/5/07 [color:#000000]</span>Ok....so that last part is a total LIE. I DID NOT AGREE to add the last part to the ARD and my signature was basically pasted on the paperwork to agree. PLEASE someone tell me what to do next. We CANNOT afford an advocate and I feel like they are totally taking advantage of us!!
