Sacora: If a staff member sends a text or calls to have me pick up child because he has had a bad day in school and she is afraid he will get in trouble on the bus and be kicked off. Do those days count toward change of placement even though it is not in the schools records?
If the child does not miss any of their instructional day, this would not count toward a change of placement. It would appear that an IEP meeting is needed to discuss what is causing the bad days & what can do to address these at school. Also training for the bus driver, & supports for the child while on the bus.
My understanding is that it counts towards the ten day rule for suspensions/expulsions. Each time counts as a day. Keep track and keep any proof you have.
