Ellen: My daughter has had an IEP since Early Childhood for initially LD but now for ADD too. She is currently a Junior. I want to ask for test retaking abilities as a accommodation. Our school district is really horrible with implementing her goals. Her GPA is taking a huge hit. An example is in her math class she was getting a high B first semester. The teacher went on maternity leave Oct. 30th. The long tern sub was “locked out” of the grading system for 5 weeks. He “was not able to” put scores into the system until Dec. 10th. I was e-mailing him and asking about scores and he was telling me he was going to do it but waited until 6 days before the end of the semester. Her grade was dropping like a rock and no one seemed to care. I asked if she could re take a test and they told me it was going to be a department decision which of course has been a nightmare to try to navigate. I feel if I have this listed as an accommodation I would not have to go through this process. I am filling a complaint with the state over the lack of progress reports but that’s a completely different issue.
