Evan still does not have a para. They said they would get him one and then the next day it was pointed out that his IEP did not state explicitly that he had to have a para (I am not sure why this ended up that way, I guess the person that wrote was just a little too subtle and gave too much credit to the school district folk's intelligence). Then the next day they sent out evaluators to see for themselves because the word of everyone else involved with him in school was not good enough I guess. They conceded that he did need a para but that they could not hire one, they would have to look at the existing para's schedules and transfer one to work with him.
Needless to say I am tired of all the bouncing around. The best news is that a review of Evan's IEP has been scheduled and that it will be rewritten to explicitly state that he needs a one on one para. After that the district will not have any wiggle room to try and screw Evan over with technicalities. Hopefully by the end of next week he will have the helps he needs and he will be able to progress to the full extent possible.
Check out my cute boys! They did great smiling for the camera.
