PO really is that clueless and apparently those over him are that clueless- yet they are ticked off at me to no end because they see my expectations for them to comply with the law as a challenge to them and they really do think they can do whatever they want with difficult child- except I do think they are starting to get a little clue on that one. For those of you who are keeping up with our story and read my last post with the letter I sent to po- I got an email response today and it had a letter and parole plan attached, saying it was "per my request". Boo-hockey- it's per state law and fed law- I found the laws- and it was supposed to have already been done but PO states it's "per my request". Anyway, it was like reading one of the first IEPs- where, instead of defining measurable goals, it states "difficult child will increase his level of understanding about the impact of his behavior". Now, that wasn't in the objectives section, that was in the section where they are supposed to define what exactly, by whom, how often, etc. But this is a parole plan- not an IEP or MH plan. It should be sticking with things like "goes to school daily unless excused by dr's notice", "passes all drug tests", complies with house arrest for 30 days, and things like that. I can't believe his super doesn't know better and what's worse, apparently the director of the CSU here doesn't know better. I'm starting to think no one in this CSU has even written one of these things before- it looks like he had reentry lady write it. I'm trying to type a letter up to respond back without making things worse but it's a flippin joke. Here's part of my draft letter: Now, I know many of us here first started out in IEP mtgs with people from the sd who pulled this koi just trying to set up loopholes by being vague in the IEP to get our kid out of the sd and we learned what steps to take to get a better, legal, appropriate IEP written with actual goals written in measurable terms to schieve the objective and to measure progress. But it usually took involvement of those higher up in the DOE. In this casae, I'm not sure the higher ups in Department of Juvenile Justice even have a clue. And they want to send people to parents' homes to teach THEM how to do a behavior contract??
