school advocate: school calls parent when IEP kid acts out

Unfortunately some public schools aren’t aware of resources available to them to help students who have inappropriate behaviors. Instead, they call the parent at home to deal with it.  The unknowing parent picks up the child.  This can go on for years; and , as a result the student is not provided the benefit of learning skills to acquire appropriate behaviors.

The district-wide discipline policy might not be comprehensible by our child.

Don’t be bamboozled!   Parents who are serious about their child’s schooling and tired of being bamboozled use advocates at The IEP Center. We go with parents to IEP meetings.

Suspension of IEP student; school advocate sees in spring

Over the years I’ve noticed  IEP students with behaviors being suspended more frequently at the month or so before the end of the school year. the-iep-center

A few years back our U.S. Congress gave school districts the ability to suspend students with IEPs up to ten school days during a school year.

In the spring, patience can wear thin and school staffer’s might suspend a student who has not yet been suspended ten days that school term.  So why not find a reason to suspend the student?  These school staffers may have no idea that a multi-day suspension might be the breaking point for a family? a marriage? income?

Parent’s can be proactive to puruse an appropriate behavior plan exists within the IEP for a student.

IEP forms in Missouri: child advocate sees districts’ vary

Some districts in Missouri use their “own” forms for IEPs.  the-iep-center Districts are allowed to use their own forms as along as the form is in “compliance” with state regulations. Noticeably, some districts omit possible services and accommodations for students on forms.  Parents who are not wise to this therefore don’t see the range of possibilities for their child’s education.  In other words, the parent doesn’t see a “menu” of services.  rsz_blank-and-waiting-200x300

Parent asks school to please test my kid

Girl struggled continuously in first grade with reading and math; teacher told mom the student may outgrow the struggles.  Mom asked the school how the school might help.  Girl is now in third grade and cries at school during math.NICHCYphotomagnifyglass3-198x300  The parent spends long evenings doing homework with girl beyond what is reasonable for a third grade student.  After several inquiries by parent, the public school teacher tells the parent it’s now time to test her but teacher doesn’t think she’ll be eligible for special education.

I get calls like this all too often! Parents aren’t aware how to get the “system” to help their child, and the school isn’t telling the parent!  Don’t let the years slip by!
