My dd has an IEP that clearly states for long written assignments she will use her

1) laptop
2) accommodated or shortened assignments will be provided
3) bubble sheets will not be used
4 ) parents can dictate longer assignments


Well she messed up. She admitted that. She lost her agenda. The teacher made her hand write 100xs
"I will not lose my agenda"

Dd asked "can I type it" teacher said no.
Dd asked "do I have to write all 100?" Teacher said yes

Now dd found her agenda that same day. I am furious. This teacher knows dd has an IEP and knows of its contents.


What say you?

------------

I am Eta due to request.

My dd has muscular dystrophy. A degenerative disease. She doesn't have an IEP because she wants to feel special. It isn't because I am whiny. It is because she has actual limitations on what she can and cannot do.

I don't think that's an appropriate punishment for a student with an Iep. What is her disability?

Sorry, but I agree with the teacher...she was punished and should not get special treatment during punishments

I think even without an IEP 100x is excessive.

I would call the teacher and remind her of the IEP in a calm gentle way, not make a fuss.

That is not a violation of the iep. Accommodations only need to be given for assignments. This is not an assignment, it's a punishment.

IEP's exist for a reason.

It was a punishment not an assignment...not the same thing.

I'd be pissed. My son has the same accomodations in his IEP - if the teacher went against that, I'd be calling the school and I think you should. Having her type it 100 times would be an acceptable punishment, not handwriting it.

Yes for her school work, not punishments....my dd has a IEP as well, but I expect her to receive the same punishment as every other kid

100 x seems excessive, but I agree with this statement.
