IEPs and 504 plans are being neglected. The school board failed to provide support to families during the school closures, while other districts larger than Wake successfully assisted their families.
WCPSS must immediately and drastically improve services to special needs families. Over the next few months, I will release testimonials from families who suffered at the hands of the Wake Board’s negligence, to include a prominent political family who left Wake County to pursue options for their child.
Additionally, I will release details of a lawsuit WCPSS has just completed wherein a student with special needs was illegally confined in a closet over twenty times and held there for hours, and at one point videoed being drug from the cafeteria because the student “wanted to eat lunch with her nondisabled peers.” Linsday Mahaffey and State Senator Sydney Batch were aware of these incidents. WCPSS fought the case and lost.
– hold schools accountable for denying legally required services
– work with the NCGA to more equitably fund SPED
– give local schools and teachers power to make decisions for their special needs students with parental consent
Chip in today and help give schools back to parents.
