Politics -- as usual?
We have concerns. He's doing well in some areas, not so well in others, and we worry. It's what we do. We ask questions that are not always easy to answer.
He has a Behavior Intervention Plan. How and when was that distributed to staff members who work with Amigo? (We know the answer to this one.) How can this be handled better in the future?
Are Braille materials available on time? (I hope for a yes answer, but I'm afraid it's inconsistent.)
And the one that has us really worries now: He's sixteen. We're looking for transition plans and job training. So far, Amigo has signed up (with our help) for a job-training camp next summer, but we haven't seen anything remotely related coming out of the school team.
After the meeting, we usually stop at a nearby, locally owned fast food joint for supper.
Amigo calls it an I Eat Pizza. The meeting, not the restaurant.
I'm glad he maintains a sense of humor. We'll see how well I maintain mine. It'll be easier if the line at the polls isn't too long in the morning. Long enough for a good turnout, just not so long I lose before-school preparation time at my desk. Stumble It!
