Why can't they just following his F&%KING IEP!

I am so tired of my son's school. He has high-functioning autism and has a very basic IEP. All year long, they have been violating the IEP. It seems like several times a week, I am at that damn school, straightening things out. It's to the point I can't get anything else done and I'm starting to get upset about it. 

Today, my son comes home and says that the afternoon aide he shares with another little boy in his class was absent, and the school didn't have a sub. Major violation, because without the aide, he also didn't get his afternoon sensory break. 

There is only two weeks left of school, but I'm not letting this go. I'm so tired of it that it's not even funny. 

Does anyone else have to deal with this?

Sorry I haven't.  However, have you talked to the principal?  The superintendent?  Take it up as high as you have to.  Is there a SPED director?

Not yet TG.  DD has a great support team for her IEP and i keep in contact with her teacher to make sure everything is going as planned there.

The principal is the biggest moron of them all. We didn't have a sped director for awhile, as the old one resigned. Just got a new one. I'll be calling him tomorrow.

I just talked to the mom whose son shares an aide with mine. She's upset, too. We're both going to call tomorrow,and we're also calling the special ed director.

My ds school totally gave up on him. This year they pretty much just let him do whatever he wanted to keep him quiet. He's going to a special school for special needs kids starting next tuesday. He will have half day group therapy over the summer and full day therapy and class starting august. I'm a bit scared for him though the school is pretty far away I want to go with him the first day but because its goes through our medical card me seeing the other kids would violate hippa.

I'm about ready to homeschool, that's how disgusted I've become. It'd mean I'd have to quit working, though, because homeschooling a special needs child is a full time job.

Can you move him to another school?

yes dd's teacher is aweful.  she has violated dd's iep several times and it seems like speaking to the principal doesn't do any good.  she is switching schools next year and i can't wait for this school year to be over with.  only a week and a half left
