She does have to be a part of the IEP meeting and has to recommend it or not recommend it. She has to agree that he needs the IEP in order to har admin agree that he needs it. In our district there are so many children who are higher needs that those who fall lower on the totem pole are denied. It is sad but there are just not enough resources available for middle of the road kids here.

We also do a lot of CYA, so we do a lot of parent contact and document it all.

OP--what type of school does your child attend?
It is public, and on the schools site, you can go to a contact link where they have the teacher listed. From there you can get their preferred method of communication, which in this case is the school office number and a message left to please call. I would love email. Although something like this could go sour in a world where theres no tone of voice. Kwim? Phone or in person is probably better to get my point across.
