Waiting over an hour for a scheduled IEP meeting is ridiculous. I arrived few minutes before to check in. When the principal came out to great me & saw that I was accompanied by two other people ( my child's therapist & assistance ) all of a sudden there's a hold up. When we finally got called in there was a "system down" explanation. Front desk systems seemed fine the whole time we were waiting. It seemed to me that not all staff that was supposed to be present was there so it was a way to kill time. The purpose of an IEP is to benefit the student. Totally opposite of what my child experienced. My child fell into a deep depression! ! What Serrano once label a "defiant" student is now enjoying school, engaged, better spirit, staff loves them, & my child is making great effort. A supporting & compassionate staff truly makes a huge difference
I'm unable to understand why Serrano can not meet the basic standard requirements level test scores!The staff is so dedicated to the enrichment of the students, especially when the parents get invovled. It saddens me deeply. All measures should be takened and examine to correct this problem our childrens future are at risk.
As a former student I would have to say that the experience was quite new. The ASB club was a great way for the sudents in the entire school to be involved in school activities. Wich I know that gave students a little more to look foward to going to school. Teachers also did a very good job in keeping students aware of what was planned.
