I updated my post from yesterday regarding signing IEP. I was told today from special education director from the district office that the laws have changed and they no longer need our signature on IEP's. Only for initial placement into the program. I was also told that we (parents) have no say so as far as placement goes. We cannot remove him from sepecial ed. if we wanted to. So, if some miracle were to happen and he matured, and was doing well, we could not have him removed from the program. That is why we did NOT agree to put him in for so long. We were assured and reassured that we could pull him out at anytime. Now we are afraid we will be at the mercy of the SD forever!
