So today was supposed to be Kyle’s first day of school but because of a series of events that I will detail when the dust settles he was home and currently does not have a proper placement. The school district for months have been trying to get us to visit this school that we know is TOTALLY inappropriate for Kyle, and we’ve resisted on those grounds…but on the advice of our legal counsel (yep 🙂 we were told to tour the school and have them evaluate Kyle so we can show our district that we’ve been compliant. So the wife calls the school to say we want to see the school this afternoon. The woman says “you can come at 1:15pm today but it you’d see a lot more and get a better feel for the school if you came around 10am tomorrow”. The wife asked what the difference between being there at 10am vs 1:15pm was. The woman says “well at 10am you could see the students working on math, social studies, reading…”. The wife says “uh Kyle is non-verbal and can barely identify his shapes…”
This is the type of school they are sending us to… Do they even read the IEP’s and reports they are sending out? WTF??
….and the drama continues… to be continued
