Finally heard from the school district- NOT HAPPY

They are standing behind their ammended IEP, which leaves us no choice but to take the next step (Due process hearing). I'm disappointed on so many levels. My last conversation with the second in command was so positive, and he conceded off the record that he would support us. I'm not sure what shifted. I guess the other scenario is that he said that, just to buy time, so that I'd back off for a few weeks??? I don't know.

This is new territory from here on out. That said, we have a great attorney working with us, who is taking the case pro bono. He feels really good about everything so we shall see. I just really didn't want to have things get nasty with the school district, as my long term goal is to have all four kids in the district, but it is what it is.

On a more positive note- I'm officially enrolled in school and start in January (M.ED-Special Ed). I guess the bad news is I probably shouldn't count on doing my student teaching at our school district-LOL.

Hey! I'm getting caught up, which is hard to do here. You write all the time :-)

This news sucks but at least you have a good lawyer doing pro bono work for you. I can't wait to hear how it turns out, with you guys firmly winning. That will show them not to mess with you in the future :-)

You're starting a Master's program? That's incredible, cool, amazing, and shocking all at once. How do you do it supermom?? I need whatever you're taking :-)
