house of cards
My son has been in third grade inclusive classroom with an IEP. It states that less homework is to be accepted and that he is to be graded on his knowledge of the main concepts. We recently removed him from the school because the teacher can't seem to understand that there are times when you accept less then the childs best ability and was causing him too much stress causing him to act out and shut down, he recieved two F's(I believe because of her anger with him for shuting down)in her class while doing well in all his electives. Now we are being told basically that because he was in an inclusive classroom that they need to follow the standards of the class as far as district policy and state standards...in other words the IEP is worthless. That can't be true, can it?? An example would be district policy requires the kids to complete an addition worksheet for homework along with whatever math they have that day, 2 sheets of math overwhelm my child and he refuses to do the work or we have a big fight. The teacher said it is "district policy"to send it and got upset if it wasn't done. Does an IEP trump district policy and state standards? Is there an exception for inclusive classrooms? And if the IEP is enforcable where can I find the supporting info? Thanks for any help.
