husband called to say instead of a one day suspension they are making it a two day suspension. I am really angry. Due to husband working at that school we know of other students who do the same and worse and aren't suspended. It seems to be this particular set of spec. ed. teachers that are pushing for his suspensions. Apparently they don't think difficult child is getting it! geez do ya think? It's part of his lack of impulse control-if he hasn't learned yet another day is going to help? That brings the total of out of school suspensions to 6 1/2 for the year. I was doing some reading and it seems that some in school suspensions count towards the 10 days in a year. If that is the case it is possible we will be at a manifistation determination (if we push for it)in which case they will have to determine this behavior is part of his disability (I'm not excusing it-just saying it comes into play). If that happens they will not be able to suspend him any more this year. I'm just not sure yet if the inschool suspensions count-I was unclear when reading the law. Now either husband or I have to take another day off. I have two new visiting students from another country starting tomorrow so I would like to be there. on the other hand husband is down to only 1 day left that he can take so I'm not sure what I'm going to do. (husband just called while I was typing this-he is going to use his day.) Today was not a ton of fun because difficult child hates when I make him do worksheets-overall he was a trooper (although a very distracted one).
