They released the classroom assignments today. I went, with ds, to find out who his teacher is. When i was there i asked when open house or meet the teacher is. The assistant replied "we arent having one this year". I asked why. She stated "district budget isnt allowing for it" i then asked why i have 3 friends with kids in 3 seperate schools all in his district who are having a meet the teacher or open house before school starts. She said "well its up to the principal to decide whether its important or not to have it". I then asked if i could go walk to ds' classroom just to see where it is so i know where to pick him up at. She told me no. I then asked for a map so i could at least see it that way. She said they didnt have one. I could come with him on his first day and see where it is.
I then went and saw the class list. He has 32 FRICKIN kids in his class. 32!!!! There are 6 2nd grade classes. Im so pissed. Im so glad he is moving schools in Oct.
I alrwady had issues with this school because ds is showing signs of dyslexia. Im dyslexic. So i saw them immediatly. I took him to his pedi who also noticed the signs and told me to talk to his teacher about a 504 plan. When i did this, i was told they dont do anything for it until 3rd grade because they think 1st graders are too young to have it. So, needless to say nothing got done.
