More school issues for Javi

So, if you were wondering where I have been for the last few days, I've been on the phone.  First with the stupid bank people that I had my school loan with, that is a long story, but sufficed to say my school loan is paid off, yay!!  I no longer have to deal with those accounting morons!

The rest of the time, having many, many discussions on what to do about Javi's school issues. Got a surprise call from the principal on Monday regarding Javi's behavior.  He has basically turned in to the "problem child" in class.  He's been disruptive, mean to other students, and generally misbehaving since his teacher has been out on medical leave.  He received a referral on Friday for a physical altercation with another student, then Monday he was disturbing another student and it was keeping both of them from working. Apparently, the ladder has become an every day occurrence, since the sub has been teaching the class.   Javi is in danger of being removed from class if he doesn't improve. They are willing to cut him some slack, since he has a sub right now and that's a big adjustment, but I think we are done with all of it.  I just basically told the principal at long last, that this year has been a total disaster and we would like to get together to discuss our options for other placements.

Well, if it's not one thing, it's another.  Either Javi comes home miserable and hating school when his teacher is there, but somewhat productive or he's driving everyone else nuts, but comes home happy.

We had hoped that Javi would eventually settle in to his class, but I think it's been long enough and he hasn't adjusted.  In fact, things are worse now than before.  We have tossed and turned over how the transition will affect him, but we are ready to just bite the bullet.  Anything would be better than his current state.  We are getting ready for yet another IEP.  I have spoken with the program specialist, emailed his teacher from last year and now we are just trying to schedule an IEP.  Keep you fingers crossed for us that we will come to a quick resolution!

PS, still no news yet about MRI results, but any day now.  Please remember Kay in your prayers that she still has a clean MRI.

good luck with Javi and the IEP meeting. I hope the school sees that the current situation is in no one's best interest and they work with you to find a better placement.

fingers crossed for good MRI results!

IEP & place him somewhere he can thrive & be productive.
