Son was removed from science last week He was place it a credit retrieval class and pending his acceptance into a virtual science class, he was to work on his Algebra summer school course. Tuesday evening I found out that he was placed in a virtual class, and I gave him his login information so he could get started Wednesday. Wednesday he came home complaining that not only they would not let him start his science, but they told him he had to finish the algebra first. I emailed my concerns this morning to the guidance counselor. In her return email she stated that she asked me to tell her when he was accepted and then they would get him started. Ok, so I screwed up. I forgot to send the email. But then the "WTF?" moment hit me. This is the same woman who is always telling me she's encouraging son to self-advocate. I'd say showing up to school and saying he has the login info and he's been accepted and he's ready to start science is pretty good self-advocating. BUT they refuse him. Wouldn't even let him log on to see if it was true. So how in the world is a child (anyone) supposed to self-advocate when no one lets them? GRRRRRRRRRRRRRR this specific incidence is really a non-issue, but I will bring it up at the IEP meeting when they bring up him self-advocating. Aside from the fact that it's not good for my stress levels, am I wrong to be getting really annoyed with this?
