First: Mr. and Mrs. Ewing who is your legal counsel?
Second: Did the parents bring a copy of the child's IEP so that all of them could review it? Were all board members notified or only certain individuals? In the IEP is it stipulated that he is required to have an aide on a bus?
Third: The new board wants to be transparent? Prior to the meeting the three new incumbents had decided who they would like to have as the board president and vice president. The other two board members were never asked, consulted or given a chance to have their input.
Fourth: Everyone has a process to go through when they have a grievance. Did you allow the system an adequate amount of time to rectify the situation? This also includes taking into account the holidays and people were traveling or out of town.
Fifth: Jim Garber has done a great job with communication and running the school district. All of our school board officials in the past have always done what they feel is best for our students and have represented the majority quite well.
Sixth: I have worked on a daily basis with special needs children in pre-school through elementary age. I now work at Otsego High School and work with students that have learning disabilities. I do understand how important it is for them to be treated the same. I am very much an advocate for these students but there is a process that everyone needs to follow.
