El: Does the school have the right to deny a child’s parent the right to be their child’s personal aide?
The district wants to place my autistic kid who needs assistance with diapering and eating in a 6:1:4 life skills classroom on the grounds that it’s the only setting where aides are trained to provide such an assistance. I want a different placement so that he can learn academic skills and agreed to be a personal aide to my child during the school day. The school where I wanted my child to be mainstreamed is against under the pretense that it would be unfair to general ed students in that classroom whose parents are not there. Does the school have the right to say that?
