What You Don't Want to Hear From Your Kid's Teacher
Leelo's main teacher was out yesterday, so instead the class was lead by the assistant teacher and a sub. I have been assured all along by the program director that they really get Leelo and that his instances of behavior have been manageable. This is why I was a little surprised to have the assistant teacher tell me yesterday that "Leelo had a really great day! He had nowhere near his usual amount of explosive aggression!"
Sigh. This is the class where it looks like he'll be going in the Fall. I've not found anything else that works for him, and have still not had any luck getting in touch with the County classroom folks. The one time the County director did call me back--thanks mb!--was when I was at an IEP and couldn't talk. I'm not thrilled about this class for Leelo, even though I think the instruction is mostly very good. But Supervisor M thinks Leelo needs the legally mandated first grade curriculum of five hours per day, the classroom is far too small, there's no playground, the bathroom is not in the building, it's only three hours per day, and it's in the afternoon from 1 - 4 which completely fucks up my day as it is in direct opposition to his sisters' schedules: Iz will be in school daily from 8:30 to 2:50 and Mali will be dropped off at Teacher Anarchy's school (thank you Baby Jesus) from 8:30 to 11:30.
Calling the county folks again today.
