I wouldn't believe them when they say you don't need to put it in writing. They may mean well but they will still let it slide unless there is a paper trail. It is human nature in a large and busy place. Go ahead and put it in writing and if they fuss, just smile and say, Oh, I'm sorry I misunderstood, I thought I needed to have it in writing. Now, when will that evaluation be done?

Found out the district really does drag their feet when getting a evaluation done, her teachers have to try some things in class with her for 6weeks before they will attempt to move forward to doing a formal evaluation.
I'd go ahead and make a written request for the evaluation as soon as schools reopen in January. Making your DD suffer for another 6 weeks is NOT acceptable.

What kind of packet is it? 12 pages sounds like a lot, but it might not be so bad if it's only a few things on each page. Is it too hard for her? Does she get anxious if you take out the packet and work on it with her? I wouldn't force her to do it if it's too hard or anxiety-producing, or if you personally can't see the educational benefit of it.

It seems to me (and I have read this whole thread) that you are not OK with her being in school and how it is unfolding...and DH is.

I doubt any of this is going to change any time soon. Your DD has been in school several months now, you have given it a good shot and do not like it as far as I can tell.

Why does your husband get to decided where she goes to school? Why is his say more valued than yours? When do you get to try things a different way - as what he wants is not working for you and it is highly questionable whether it is working for your DD?

Honestly, I think you need to have it out with the man.

Hugs,

My girls are back at school today. I think it would be a waste of a snow day if we had today off- they'll appreciate the break a lot more when they've actually been in school.

I will say, though, that having "homework for the break" at the middle and high school level makes a lot of sense. Instead of "partying for a week and a half" and then jumping back into school today, they spent the weekend doing homework and getting back into the school mindset before they returned.

Well the kids were SUPPOSED to be able to start today, however the district will not let them start without any records from California (we tried a virtual academy this fall to have my dd tested for special ed) so we wait until they decide to get off their arses and test them or get something from California..what a pita

I'm super late in finding this thread! Hi! shy.gif

 

My DS ( almost 8) has been homeschooled since Kindergarten, but DH and I feel maybe he needs to go to Public School next year (for various reasons). My DD (6) has gone to public school and they both seem a bit excited to go to school together :) But I'm sure it will still be an adjustment for my little man.
