>Was sad to take our son back to the residential facility. Had a great weekend. Filed the appeal for the abuse and neglect complaint. I commented that in my opinion academic records were tampered with. The IEP created last January was based in part on the psychiatric report from his doctor. I said that I would sign whatever releases were necessary to facilitate the request of records relating to when records or information was sent to the school as well as the nature of the records sent to the school. For a remedy, I said we wanted up to and including the termination of the principal and superintendent as well as the loss of license, and an apology. I don’t want them to be able to harm any other children. On another note I heard from the PATH organization and learned that our son qualifies for family support. So
>Why is the principal able to control our son’s release date? Because she thinks that his report card won’t look good if he transfers back to the district with so few days left in the semester, our son is spending an extra 30 days in the residential facility. I understand why the residential facility is doing what they are doing, they are structuring things so that one of their staff can spend time with our son in the school that he will be transferring back into. The appeal for the abuse and neglect complaint decision will be sent in on Monday. We had to list what we wanted for remedy. We want an apology from the district, we want the principal to lose her license and job. We want the superintendent to retire. We can prove that the district received documentation from the various doctors associated with our sons care.
> our son has been home for a home visit for 24 hours now. It has been great having him here. No outbursts, he is playing nicely with others, and we are overjoyed with having all of our children under the same roof. As it stands right now, he will be discharged from the residential facility on the 13th of January. Steps are being taken by us and the staff of the agency that runs the facility to transition him into the public school and our home. We are working on lining up respite care, and after care. His psychiatrist is going to treat him again. Through the Christmas break, he will be home periodically, he can’t be home for the whole two weeks because of insurance issues. So we can have him for a couple three days at a time. Tweet #fighting4answrs
