Elva:  Im so confused. My daughter just started high school and I’m just baffled by what is going on. She has not gotten any homework in almost 3 weeks and when we asked they said she should just read at home. She mentioned that she is bored and that they don’t do anything. Im worried and I don’t really understand how the special education program differs from middle school. What about Diploma and Certificate difference?

If your state has adopted the Common Core, you can argue that your child’s curriculum is not aligned to the Common Core. Ask for copies of classwork so you can bring them to your meeting. If they don’t give you anything, tell them you need an appointment to examine the child’s recent educational records. If they show you any actual classwork when you go for the appointment, put a post-it on each page you would like them to xerox. If you have the right sort of gadget, you could also photograph each relevant page.

You can always request an IEP meeting to discuss the situation. You will have a better chance to discuss any issues. The school must follow the IEP. If you need to update the IEP that would also be something you can do. I agree that you should not wait any longer.

I suggest that you contact the district’s special ed department, if you have not already done so. You can contact your state parent training & information center to assist you. http://www.parentcenterhub.org/find-your-center/
