The company that the school district contracts to for special education services and I do not always get along. We live in a very rural area in the middle of nowhere and they have an opinion most of the time that it is their way or the highway.
DS1 has an IEP and attends a local, private PK. The school districts pay a small amount towards his monthly bill and provides two hours a week of services for him. He was out of school for the last two weeks for therapy/medical reasons. I purposely waited until the last minute to tell the company about his absence and declined to tell them why were gone. I have discovered that the less they know the better. They routinely use information I have given to them against me.
I just found out that they called a meeting with his teacher will we were gone to discuss him. I was never notified about this meeting. The teacher only mentioned a few key points about the meeting because she told me at school pick up today. It seemed to mostly be about transitioning him to K next year which they did make the point made to the teacher that I would have no say in which school he would placed in and that would be a decision for his team to make. Hmmm, really?
I'm more curious if they are legally required to notice parents before having a meeting discussing him. This would not be the first time they have gone behind my back, the other way was certainly illegal and in hindsight, I should of pursued it.
