    I think it’s our Ops fellow misguidedly trying to save the school money. Or she’s drastically overworked. Or both.
    We had two outstanding bills from last year that were preventing us from registering this year. After visiting the office every day, I got them to cut one check. I took a photo of the check and emailed it to them to show it’s coming. And they lifted the hold.
    I go in to tell her the good news and she asks, “since the hold is lifted, do I need to send the check?”

    Congrats. I’ve got to do 7 essays. No preferred parking but we don’t have assigned parking, and I’m able to park right at the closest entrance to my room.

    Played a study review jeopardy game today in one of my classes today. Every team ended in negative points. That’s also with a category about Disney movies.

    Beat my previous record of a 1 hour and 52 minute long IEP last night with a 2 hour long IEP

    Good chance I beat the 2 hour IEP record tonight. Going on 1 hour and 40 minutes with no end in sight.

    Help.

    Mom was a lawyer, step dad was a judge. Mom was really dragging it out. The student did have a processing disability but was overall intelligent, just lazy. They pushed too hard of a course load for his disability and motivation, because the kid was fine in class, but they also expected 95s in every class which wasn’t realistic.

    Just finished up. Turns out mom just wanted a diagnosis in educational autism to accompany her son's already medically diagnosed autism.

    Cool cool cool

    what’s the difference?

    edit: after some juggsian research he was diagnosed with asd but it didn’t impact learning so he didn’t qualify for services?

    one of my students called the sheriff’s department after school to report he was being bullied and that the bully said they were going to blow up the school. so they send some deputies to his house and when they got there he just wanted help on his math homework :facepalm:

    kinda sweet he thinks that highly of cops though

    Medical relies on the DSM to make a diagnosis, current is DSM5 with aspergers now removed

    The list is very short on who can diagnosis autism

    Schools can't diagnose, rather schools determine eligibility

    Team members and parents fill out simple checklists etc to discuss and determine if student meets criteria

    As a result, the student doesn't receive a diagnosis, but rather fits a set of criteria for one of the qualifying categories on the IEP

    Typically a student is eligible for services based on fitting 1 of the 13 or 14 disability categories (autism being one of them) or student's disability interferes with his or her ability to make progress. California is a bit different in ruling.

    Medical diagnosis is usually done to receive insurance coverage for out of school services

    Additionally, students most often receive medical diagnosis and not educational - very rarely the other way around

    I once had a day of ISS in middle school and my parents to this day still don’t know about it because I forged my mom’s signature on the notice I had to take home.

    I got a week of ISS because I wrote the answers down to a nights math homework for a friend and his dumbass put his name on my handwriting paper I gave him and turned it in.
    We were in 7th grade if I remember right.

    It was seriously just the # of the problem and the answer, like
    #1. 25
    #2. 30

    And they put me in ISS for that
    So dumb

    Aaaaaand this is why our students aren’t allowed to have their phones out :laugh:

    Makes it easy to figure out who’s breaking the rules since they still insist on tagging their locations if they post during the day.
