by the way, this principal first encountered my family as the "district representative" present at an IEP meeting held at a school where my oldest son was placed "out of district". She was the person on the "invite" from our "home district" that I had questioned being in attendance. Do yo remember that instance Gail? I think I posted on it in my IEP vs. 504 thread....

MB, are they smart enough to see their hypocrisy? (That they gave one a day's notice for DS's speech eval.)

Hmmmm, maybe I missed something but if he was in Special Ed classes beforehand, and school took him out of said classes and he's having problems being in new said classes including with the school/certain teachers wanting to label him ADD, etc., why don't they just put him back into his Special Ed class?
As far as food, I do know that certain foods make kids "bounce off the walls" (if you will) more so than other kids. A friend of mine had problems with her child as he was acting out in class. I don't exactly know how she went about figuring it out but she found out his body reacted with certain foods containing silicilates (additives found in some foods). (I can't remember the correct term that was used to describe what her son had). Not saying that this is the case but is it possible some of the foods that he is digesting is playing a part in his acting out at school?
(MB, don't take this the wrong way but just trying to look at things from every angle.)
As far as tape recording your meetings, why is that an issue? They usually take minutes during most meetings anyway. Are they afraid someone will say something inappropriate? Wouldn't they rather have some stated accurately where all parties are crystal clear on what's being said as opposed to someone twisting words around?
I'm not sure about pulling him out of school, though. I know you're upset about all this and have every right to be but I'd hate for the school to give you any grief about the lack of attendance resulting in possible repeating of said school year.
Wishful thinking here but can you (or someone else who isn't linked with the school) monitor some of his time while he is in his classroom? If your son's punishment of standing by the wall during recess isn't working (which it doesn't sound like it is), why isn't the teacher trying something else that would be more productive? (unless she is and I missed that)

[b]Three[/b]. Three phone calls from the school by 2pm. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/tongue.gif[/img]
1. To inform me the cumulative chart was ready.
2. To schedule further testing (from the psychologist).
3. From the first grade teacher to reschedule parent teacher conference.
4. From the director of special education to schedule an appointment to review the cumulative chart (district), not co-op.
