Hello to all. Been many months since I have been on this board. Shouts to Connie, Abby, and many others. Our oldest daughter (difficult child) is 17 now. She is in a seperate school of specEd children. This is a relatively new public school only in its second year of existance. This is a public school run by the local school district. They have two policies that I have questions about but cannot seem to remember the exact citation in the IDEA that says this is wrong. #1: Paying for PE This school does not have PE facilities. The director of the school is now introducing a policy where we must purchase our child a membership to the local Boys & Girls club for $20. The school will then take my child to the B&G Club via transporation provided by the B&G Club. The school district only pays for gas. If I recall correctly, the school district must provide the same opportunities (PE in this case) to specEd student that are availiable to mainstream students at no additonal cost to the parents. #2 Shorter school day The school lets the kids out of school at 1.5 hours earlier then their mainstream peers on Friday every week. Over a 180-day school year this amounts to 270 classroom hours or about 34 8-hour school days. Is the School District required to provide the same number of hours of education to specEd students as their mainstream peers?
