Nothing like having the school principal calling you with an angry attitude since you called the county board of education. Seriously how long does it take to put an iep or 504 in place?
I've been at this since the 4th grade. And most aggressively just before the beginning of the 7th grade school year. Half the school year is over and the 3rd quarter is beginning. He is getting getting D/F in math and language arts every year with MAYBE at best an occasional C- .
Yes I am pissed off but I have been very patient. They have absolutely no empathy and act upon their stress of the day. I get that. But how am I to help my son who is in the process of finally getting an actual diagnosis for add/adhd just so they get documented proof? I feel helpless. All they tell me is they are working on it. And the principal's excuse is this is his first year in the school. Idk. I feel contacting the county was a brilliant thing to do because of all the past empty promises. Next will be them AND the state if it goes another quarter. I have done everything possible including doctors and counseling and giving them ALL the records for proof. Only 1 teacher (math) of 5 half filled out the conners survey revealing only no academic concern.
If they don't get on this idk what to do. Changing schools means starting this ugly process all over. We don't have another 4 years to mess around.
I've changed my parenting many times. Tried to understand google classroom with the unmatched titles of graded assignments on the online posted school site. Asked for help from the school many times- no help. Asked for my son to stay over with teachers, I would pick him up (they agreed but never did including starting to give him detention). Nothing since 4th grade. I homeschooled before then and it took all I had as I am a single working parent of 2. Even the school guidance counselor who had 4 adhd sons will not help me except to say if he finishes lunch early he can go meet with one of his teachers or go to her office for help. But no one is making him do that when he would rather be with friends.
He does have missing assignments from not keeping up and being easily distracted. He is struggling. And there is absolutely no accountability or help from the school getting him to do what he needs to do. They won't even give me usernames or passwords for fear I would do his work I guess? But how am I to keep him accountable when "he doesn't remember" cause the school computers automatically save everything for him and they aren't allowed to take them home?
I feel like I am out of resources.
