I just received a letter from the school district yesterday stating they are referred difficult child to the Positive Behavior Team. This meeting is on the 20th - we have a manifestation hearing on the 17th. From the letter: After all the information is presented, the Panel will deliberate, make placement recommendations and develop an intervention plan. If difficult child fails to comply with the directives and interventions specified by the Positive Behavior Team, difficult child may be recommended for expulsion or other disciplinary actions as appropriate From district website: The district Positive Behavior Team shall be composed of a district Student Services Administrator, who acts as chairperson, and other representatives from the district, community based organizations, Child Protective Services, the County Probation Department, and the local police departments. The function of this committee shall be to consider cases of persistent student suspensions and to develop interventions which support school safety, and reduce student expulsions. The district Positive Behavior Team is designated to bring together a formal review board to assist in correcting student behavior that has resulted in ten or more cumulative suspensions. I am feeling so frustrated and overwhelmed. This isn't feeling positive at all!
