as you near the end of the school year, (or pass the 100th day) do you find your child's IEP or 504 less stringently enforced? Slip ups? People expressing their *true* feelings regarding accommodations for your child? Bending of the rules? Manipulating around them?

I'm asking since I got "burned" last year on the *last day*. (and a couple of incidents leading up to it). This year, I'm making sure all "reminder memos" and teaching re-inforcement regarding my cubs plan is carried out, as indicated in his plan.

I mean, last year, on the last day, I had a staff member tell me point blank (and after the fact) they didn't follow his formal plan in one regard (or maybe really several) "because it was the last day of school" and they'd "do it again". And I was told this in front of other staff members.

When I looked back, I could see things that led up to this.

I had a formal incident report filed *by the school* and originating from their end.

Not saying I'm not happy with how this year is going, [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/biggrin.gif[/img], just that once burned, twice shy. KWIM?

my my my, once bited twice shy baby.
showing my age and my extreme dorkness.
I think I am lucky. My son's school has embraced the plan we put in place and added things of thier own, like extra training, letters home from both the teachers and the principal, letters to all bus riders, and lunch aides.
For me, if anything, everyone just got more comfortable and understanding with it all, in a good way.
Doesnt mean I totally trust them.

I KNEW I SHOULDA USED "BITTEN". just keeping in theme with the "burned" aspect. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/biggrin.gif[/img]
but I digress....i can say that yes, i think they are more "comfortable". routine, I mean. (although there were a few things that needed clarification, and they were not deliberate maliciousness.)
But yeah, last year I thought everyone was "comfortable" and WHOA. Did I get a surprise.
When I confronted the issue, (last year) there was this: "well school's out now, what do you want *me* to do about it?*
So I climbed higher up the chain of command. District level, even.
Again, no advice, just one personal situation. Individual Mileage May Vary. But I'm thinking ahead this year.
