Remember the complaint I sent to the State Department of Education?
Well, I received a call from the Compliance Officer this afternoon. She explained to me that her investigation was primarily surrounding Jaysen's behavior plan, and whether or not the school was implementing it.
Since they have been scrambling and trying to cover their asses, they were able to show that they have been meeting weekly, tracking and reviewing data, and attempting to find the appropriate supports.
My concern that the data being collected is inaccurate because they're neglecting to document any antecedents, is apparently futile. She "can't be convinced" that they're not tracking antecedents. Umm...have you looked at the data collection sheets? Whatever.
The IEP states that a behavior plan needs to be in place, and they have proved that. She found them not in violation as they are fulfilling the IEP. She will mail out her report tomorrow. I'm trying to contain my joy.
I remarked that there are aspects of the IEP that are not being fulfilled, like his assignments being scaffolded and such. She reminded me that her focus was the behavior plan. No mention of the other complaints, just the BIP.
Well, I certainly feel defeated, although she did give me the contact information for the Office of Civil Rights. She said she was sympathetic to my frustrations, and I would need to contact the OCR regarding the discrimination complaints I had.
