Yeah kinda like lip service, only difference is that if they can act responsibly they can have pb. now, in giving pb back to them as an option, it is written, so that they understand, if they act carelessly it will be taken away, and for good this time.[/b]
implying that PB is a [b]right[/b]?

I see you added:
"[b]and acknowledge[/b]"
***********************
Should we start a separate thread pertaining to "[b]Informed Consent[/b]" or is this just as good a place as any?

number 13 has changed to read:

THIS PLAN IS IN NO WAY LEGALLY BINDING [b]AGAINST[/b] ANY PARENT OF CHILDREN WITH LIFE-THREATENING ALLERGIES, and as such, these parents will retain the right to, [b] at any time,[/b] request changes be made to this plan or request that this plan be removed should they feel it does not or is no longer protecting their children.

again, why would *I* for instance prefer this plan as opposed to let's say an IEP/OHI or 504?
General disclaimer: I am not offering advice in any manner or form. Just curious.

Does "The A.S.E. Program"
afford monies/funding to the school district in order to make accommodations?

MommaBear, you are making this harder than it needs to be, you are reading WAY too much into it. (because you are thinking like a PA parent and not like the majority of others who dont even have a clue about this)
this is it, pure and simple...
the school is allowing [b]peanut butter[/b], but only if we (the parents of non pa kids) can act responsibly, and have our children act responsibly. so we still have that as an option and nothing has been taken away from us. now [b]if it is[/b]taken away later, we will have nobody to blame but ourselves.
IMHO, people didnt really care about peanut containg products so much as they did peanut butter, Peanut containg products are eliminated all together and thats hardly an inconvienince at all. in their minds they are not thinking that convenience for them could mean death to another. They are thinking "this person is trying to take something away from my child" (and in being MommaBear, you know that the momma bear is most dangerous when it comes to her cubs, thats true whether your child is PA, MFA, non PA, cripple, HIV pos, etc)
and we could get into a whole big debate about "well they should learn" you dont have to convince me, and I am going to share my knowledge with them, but what I am going for right now is trying not to fan the flames, but instead, trying to give them something back, so that they will see that themom isnt an unreasonable person and that she is willing to show them a limited amount of trust that they will do whats right.
For the most part I think it will work in getting the majority of protesters to now be cooperative and voluntarily leave pb out of their kids lunches, and not put it in there because "nobodys gonna tell me that I cant give my kid pb for lunch."
