We were at Doss Elementary for 7 years and finally left after last because of the poor management and over crowding. When we first started, there were about 550 kids and last year there was 950 and now all students are in portables for at least twoyears or more. This DOES have an impact on teaching, learning and safety. We were particularly unfortunate because my son was also sick for many months and the trip to the nurse was so far, he was often dissuaded from going. Safety is impacted because there is access to the portables from the street only a few yards away. However, the main reason was the lack of compassion and ability to handle our son's illness (Crohn's disease). The 504 program is supposed to help the child be in an environment conducive to learning, but instead they used to to complain about his behavior and try to make it easier on the teacher. It mentioned nothing about his physical needs or emotional struggles. I finally took him out of school for 6 weeks while he was sick and had trouble even getting his schoolwork weekly or any help, much less a get well soon card. I used to worry about their lack of a gifted program, but that's the least of it...
