I just received a phone call from the compliance Officer of the ISD. She wanted some details of the issues surrounding Jaysen at school, and we set up an appointment to discuss them for this Friday.
Which, by the way, also happens to be my birthday...
Anyway, the Compliance Officer noted that I have some complaints (legitimate legal and procedural violations), and some concerns (Jaysen's treatment and environment). She wanted to make me aware that we would be discussing the actual complaints. I told her I was aware of that, and I included the concerns for more of a background.
Hopefully, this is the first real step to get things going.
My father was talking to a teacher in another school district- apparently, although our district has a phenominal school system, they're notorious for having craptastic special education services. Getting services from our district is like getting Ex to pay child support. And trust me, there's a better chance of me becoming a nun.
That said, I guess I've been doing pretty well considering Jaysen does have services, they're just the wrong ones. Hey- at least if they're there, they can be tweaked until they're correct.
This teacher-lady also told my dad of the surrounding districts that are worth a shit. I at least have a starting point to researching a more supportive environment for Jaysen.
All that aside, I've been having issues with Blogger (at least I think it's Blogger). For some reason, I have been unable to post comments on other blogs. Sometimes it will work, but for the most part, the comments keep getting bounced back to me. I am computer illiterate, so this is driving me batshit crazy, as I do not know what the problem is.
