Advice Needed: My 8 year old daughter given a detention for forgetting a pencil!!!
Does this happen to anyone else's elementary schoolers? Our children's school has the most rediculous policy, they give detentions for forgetting pencils, binders, homework, papers, books, and anything the child needs in his classroom. My daughter has recieved 18 in school detentions for things like forgetting he pencil, her binder, her planner, and one time she started a test too soon before the teacher said :'go' and got a detention. Then I talked with the pricincipal to no avail, nothing was done.
I applied for a 504 plan and it was denied. I do not have much money so an attorney is my Last resort.
My daughter came home from school yesterday and told me she almost peed in her pants because her math teacher would not let her use the bathroom, he told her if she wants to leave to go tot he bathroom that she will get a 10 minute in school detention, and that she should wait till after his class!!! I was really appalled to hear that. So I went to talk to the principal to no avail...
My doctors have written notes to the school to provide accomodations for my daugther and they are ignoring them. This is getting so rediculous Im ready to homeschool! Any advice is appreciated.
