This Office staff at this school has little concern for students with actual learning disabilities. They tend to put things on the back plate based on students age. With little concern that with out receiving the help they need they will just continue to fall furthered behind. It was brought to my attention that my daughter was far behind the rest of the class in Kindergarten even though she was receiving the max amount of one on one help from parent volunteers. I was told that they did not have summer school for kindergartners. She is now in first grade and has received intervention since the beginning of the year and has made improvements but non the less still behind. At the beginning of the year I told the teacher she has dyslexia and needs testing for SE. She said the process takes a long time. When they refused based on age. I went to the Head Director of SE. Signed the letter and she will be tested for SE. I also got a specialist to evaluate her and confirm that she has dyslexia. This school councilor refuses to ask teachers to read up on learning disabilities. If they did more students could get the help they need to succeed. My advice do not stop until you are herd.
