My son has been enrolled at Sumner Middle School since Fall 2012. He is in a Special Education Program and had PHENOMENAL success the first year. This year the program head left and the program has not been the same at all. My son has not been getting the services and supports that he needs, nor have the other students in the program. There is lack of knowledge about Special Education Regulations district wide. I would like to think it is lack of knowledge and not just outright negligence, but I am not so sure. There are wonderful staff members at the school (along with some not so great ones), but I do not think they are given the right tools to make the program successful. I find that the "let's wait and see" or suspension/expulsion seems to be the method of dealing with situations, The school could greatly improve if the staff were given the appropriate training (this goes all the way up to the principals!) While we hear a lot of "we are doing our best", that is not enough.
I was a sixth grader at Sumner Middle School, and moved, But this school is one of the best out there. The Staff and students are welcoming, and nice. That year at Sumner Middle School was one of my best school years of my life.
