Dee:  My son is senior with ADHD and OHI, quiet and shy. He is to graduate in 4 weeks. His assistant principal called me today to tell me he is kicked out of school for the rest of the year. He can not go to prom, attend his IEP meeting or be on campus for any reason. Apparently he cursed his track coaches out and got in their face. He had taken about 6 yr old ADHD meds because he couldn’t find his which was a lesser dose. They told me to come pick his work up, they will allow him to graduate and attend graduation practice.
My son only attends school every other day now. The asst said he is suspended for 9 days.

I contacted the principal for a meeting because I think the punishment is too harsh. He is kicked off team. suspended for rest of year, not allowed at prom and not allowed at school for his last IEP Meeting. Asst principal said if he comes to school property he will be arrested for trespassing. I don’t think it is legal to deny him the right to attend this meeting.  I just think the punishment was excessive.

Dee –

Although I have not know of any students in such a situation, I have know parents who were prohibited from school grounds. In these cases, the school provided them with other ways they could participate in the Team meeting – such as letting them call in.

I encourage you to ask the assistant principal to provide your son with other means to participate.
