Melissa: My son is 14 yrs old and got suspended from school two weeks ago for something that was “hear say”. Another student told a girl something that my son had said. She told her parents, who told the principal. The principal called me and had me pick up my son from school. We just had an IEP meeting and my son gets help from the school at the library for 1 1/2 hrs a day, but he is still suspended. I live 16 miles out of town. They recommend treatment for him like inpatient, before or if he can come back to the school. I dont know what to do. When everything was supposed to be confidential. they wrote the whole story detailed in his IEP when it was not supposed to leave the principal’s office. We were told those people didn’t not know what had happened with all the hear say. The the superintendent said he spoke to the girl student, believed her story and said “that student doesn’t lie.” Can you point me to the direction i need to go? i think i am getting wrong stuff here.
