Posted July 2, 2010

My son just completed the 1st grade here, and we had a very positive experience. He was not in the public school system prior to this, and I was worried. He has a anxiety diagnosis, as well as some oppositional behavior, along with fine motor skill delays. Just before the school year started, I had several meetings with staff at the school: principal and counselor, primarily. I was greatly reassured. The counselor helped me work out a plan to get him riding the school bus (something he learned to love quickly, rather than fear). They placed him with a terrific teacher who provided kind, but firm, guidance for him. I was also able to get him into OT without too much trouble (1 phone call) to help with fine motor skills and sensory integration issues he has. I feel pretty good about Miller. (Also-peanut ban was lifted this past year.)

This school just decided to ban all peanut products (peanut butter, foods cooked in peanut oil, etc), beans, legumes, and pitted fruits such as peaches, plums, nectarines, cherries, etc all because a *single* student is allegedly deathly allergic to these foods, even if he smells them on someone's breath (and the list may grow longer when the school gets the final rundown from the child's allergist). The ban doesn't just include the foods served by the school, but also to lunches students bring from home. The school has thusly banned a huge segment of healthy foods from all students. I'm really not sure what vegetarian kids will eat at this point, and poor parents apparently can cross cheap peanut butter off the list of foods they can feed their children for lunch. 400 children must have their entire diets completely altered for one single child. Ridiculous! Surely there are other options...

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Maine used the New England Common Assessment Program (NECAP) to test students in grades 3 through 8 in reading and math and in grades 5 and 8 in writing. The NECAP is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Maine. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.
