The IEP meeting continues tomorrow morning at 8am. Grandma had bought into their 4-hour day theory, but after she and I talked, she read everyone's comments here, and she talked to her peers (she's a former teacher and counselor, and a former employee of this school district), she agrees 4 hours is ghastly. I will fight it, but really, if they won't budge, what can I do besides get the notice of action refused? I plan to argue FAPE and IDEA; my kid has, at worst testing, average IQ and is functioning at a pre-K level (best testing put him above average with "average functional IQ" because of his "issues"). Missouri requires 3 hours of instructional time for a day to "count" for gen ed. That doesn't apply to kids on an IEP, but really, should his education be compromised because they can'nt/refuse to figure it out? I was fairly ok with the schedule, also, but I'm changing my mind on that, as well. He read a sentence to me, was very excited to do so. Eight words, all "site words" that he knows. All surrounding sounds had to be eliminated for him to read it, even the 6th or 7th time thru. He can not function with distractions. I'd like to see him back in the mainstream room for some social time, but he can't learn there. But if they say no...what recourse do I have tomorrow? Any? The advocate has not called me back. So I'm flying solo.
