No, I’m not talking Olympics-but i will be watching and really getting waaaay too far into the Olympic hockey, both men’s and women’s. Seriously. It will be overload. So, be warned.
What the games are for me at this time of year are the IEP games. Last year, it was the kindergarten debacle. This year, we’re talking first grade debacle. Right now, we’re not in debacle land quite yet, and I don’t know if we’ll get to the heights of what we went through last year, but one never knows in dealing with this school district.
At least Isaac’s consultant teacher has some sort of sense in her head. She had the good sense when dipwads from the district said “we want all IEPs done at your school in NOVEMBER.” to say “Not a chance.” We got pushed to March. Not terrible…but still annoying.
I’m truly not looking forward to getting the majority of the reports back from the teachers/therapists. Based on the one I got early, I’m not impressed. She not only had wrong items on the report, but things were all sorts of misspelled, and things that shouldn’t have been noted in this report were.
I’m so not ready for this. I’m already writing request letters for teachers and to see if we can keep his shared aide with him…unless she wants to stay in kindergarten…
I don’t know if I can handle the stress of the IEP this year. I’ve emailed the consultant teacher many a time, and I think the line that says it all here is the following:
“Something has to give here, and I’m afraid it’s going to be my sanity.”
I knew the IEP process sucked for teachers, but you have no idea how bad it sucks for the parents until you’re on this side of the fence…
