ESE Teachers - this is a warning, pay attention!

The way to CYA, is to put into writing and send the district or a member of the school board your views on the ESE cutbacks in services for next year. That action may be your only protection in a law suit.

"WASHINGTON, May 21 — A Supreme Court decision on Monday gave parents of children with disabilities the right to go to court without a lawyer to challenge their public school district’s individualized plan for their child’s education." (click title for full story)

Read the post below about a teacher being awarded 1M, her only back up was to have her concerns in writing. Read the post below from STAND. Not reporting students' violation of their rights is like not reporting abuse or neglect.

Late yesterday (5/21), the district announced that the IEP Paraprofessional positions are "frozen" and will be filled by all the VE teachers who are in the pool. So, a highly qualified teacher" may be in this position. STAND do not stand for this! This is not a solution to deliver quality services for students with disabilities.
