In Reply to: help....Jr. High is not working posted by Cyndi on March 03, 2000 at 03:11:33:
: My son is 12 and now in 6th grade which is Jr. High. He has been in special ed since the 2nd. grade. He is ADD/OCD and has a learning disability. He is in all regular ed classes and has an I.E.P. Now that he is in Jr.High, He is having worse social problems than he was before. He has been supsended twice for fights he did not start, there is a 0 tolerance policy here, and thrown in the garbage a couple of times. We have complained about the lack of supervision and the fact that our son is being harassed it seems everyday at school but nothing is working. The school is not following the I.E.P. on a daily basis. I have spoken with everyone I can think of and have now contacted a parent advocated group to help. We are supposed to reconvene for a new I.E.P. and do a behavoir plan. Does anyone have any suggestions for a behavoir plan? I have never done one before. Please feel free to e-mail me with your help... thanks.
I would get my child OUT of a school where he is harrassed like that and no one takes responsibility to stop it. ADD or not, he is not responsible for other kid's bad behaviour! He has enough problems.
What kid can study or thrive in that environment?
I would be complaining loud and long to a school board that permits that behaviour to go on.
