ADHD at School
Detention in Kindergarten
My 5 yo in Kindergarten was diagnosed with ADD last month; we just notified the school today. Anyway, I received a phone call that my son would have to attend detention for 2.5 hours after school because he had too many negative points on his school record (online). If he does not attend, he will be expelled.
I disagree with this on so many levels BUT:
Can I request that the time be split up into shorter increments? He is going to have such a hard time & I do not want to set him up to fail.
Do I have any rights here? He already has a 504 plan for his SPD and I just cannot believe he has detention!
