    Default MIDDLE SCHOOL MAYHEM

    I guess it started at the "meet the teacher confrence"I was expecting

    a speech as to what all we would be looking forward to for my son in

    the up comming year as well as the infamous manilla envelope with the

    hand book as well as all the information forms we need to fill out as

    well as the lunch information(as we do each year. Well,the class

    wasn't prepared and there was no speech or papers,we waited around

    and then left wonderin why we had to come in the first place.On my

    sons schedule he is supposed to have "activites" such as

    art,music,and health 4th period switching out over a 9 week period. I

    was assuming this was a "given" meaning I was always told that even

    though my son is in a structured learning class that he would

    be "getting out " to go into reg.classes during the day.Well,the 2nd

    day of school my son told me that he stayed in the "SLC" all day

    except for recess and lunch. I aske dhim how come he didn't go to Art

    class,and he said that he wasn't supposed to go.So that morning I

    found out that on his behavior report cart(they use a 1-5 point

    system,1 behaving excellently and 5 meaning very poorly)My son

    brought home 3 checks in the 3 range,guessing in th emiddle,and it

    was then explained to me that he needed to get all 1's in order to go

    to the "activites" planned! This is insane! I have never heard of

    using "classes" as a reward or a modivator to behave! I think its

    wrong,because most kids won't care either way if they have those

    classes or not,as in the case with my son. I still haven't recieved

    any paper work to fill out and really feel like I don't know whats

    going on at all there.The teacher is new to the school but she has a

    wonderful reputation as a behavior specialist. I was told he would

    get to get out of the class to what seems like only if he gets the

    1's on his behavor list,so now I'm wonderin what happens if he does

    get all 1's one day and the next not?Are they just going to "give and

    take away" as they seem fit? Has anyone hear of this? I can't seem to

    find anyone that will work with me and all the people I spoke to

    are"selling the teacher and the class room he is in"which is all

    good,but thats not what I'm interrested in the moment. Also being

    that my son is a SN child and tends to get bullied,they have been

    letting him go off alone at the end of the day,to get on the bus and


    such? The first day he got off at the wrong stop and walked home the

    rest of the way! I mean they have no one watching these kids at the

    end of the day and I asked my son what happens if someone bothers

    you? He told me I guess I have to handle it myself. Ok,I just think

    some safety should be out there with that many kids.What do you all

    think? It seems each day I am finding that this school is just more

    unorganized then ever,and I can't home school him. I am just so

    dissappointed in the whole system at this point! No wonder so many SN

    kids slip through the cracks because of the way they are treated!Its

    a shame!
