When my wife came home from work and checked her personal email, she discovered a copy of the prior written notice had been emailed to her. And evidently it had been emailed to me as well. To an account that I never use to communicate with the district. Very frustrating. As to the content of the PWN… well, let’s just say that it is adversarial in nature. We are trying to figure out what the principal is attempting to do. First, the PWN isn’t from the Special Education teacher that our son would work with. It is from the school principal.
