Howdy Ya'll.... I'm somewhat new to this forum. I joined sometime last year, but had to re-register since I forgot my sign in info. I have a 9 yr old daughter who is multi handicapped. Wheelchair, no speech, developmentally delayed, seizures, severe allergies (peanuts, soybean, eggs, whey, orange and tomatoe) and has some feeding issues. She's in a LRE class of 12 children. Yes, 12 children!! With only a teacher, and three aides. The teacher agrees that she needs more staff since the majority of the children are one on one, but the school doesn't listen to her. Instead of getting more staff, they ended up adding more children. Which brought it up to 12. We have a meeting on monday, and I am ready to blow a headgasket. I have one other parent who's child is the same level as mine and she has had a meeting already. But I don't know how far she got. We are the only parents who seem concerned with the staffing issue. The others either don't care, or just assume its being done. My daughter's IEP states one on one, but I know for a fact that there is no way its being met with the limited staff. The teacher told me they do not have time or the staff to bring kids to specials (adapted gym, art, music) Their excuse is there is no money in the budget. I already discovered (from this forum that I had noted from before on my last visit) that according to IDEA and 504, the federal isn't concerned with "budgets". If a childs needs are not being met, one way or the other the school district has to correct it. Any input would be greatly appreciated!!!
