It went as I expected it would. The dean of students(not the one Andrew is buddies with...he came in later) and Andrew's instructor were there. The D of S told Andrew that he was not defending himself because he hit back. Apparently their definition of defending yourself is "trying to restrain the person who is attacking you". BS! Anyway, Andrew and I had to sign an agreement stating that we understand if he gets into a fight again, he will be kicked out of the Tech school permanently. Then they suggested that he sit down with the other kid and "talk out their differences". Are they kidding???? I asked the D of S and the instructor what they were going to do to prevent this kid from going after Andrew in the future. They told me they will have another adult in the classroom "once in a while" to keep an eye on things. Wow, now THAT makes me feel better! *eyeroll* They also told Andrew that if the other kid even looks at him funny, he needs to tell the instructor. Basically they want him to be a tattletale. After stressing several times to Andrew that he was damn lucky they didn't give him more days out and call the police, they told him he could return to school today. I asked them if the other kid would be there today and the D of S said he "couldn't discuss that with me". I said I wanted to know so that Andrew is prepared to handle the situation, and he said yes, he would be there. So basically, the kid who attacked my son got the exact same amount of punishment! Is that BS or what?? Andrew came home from school today and told me the other kid did nothing but sit at his desk all day and cry. Doesn't that tell you that there is something seriously wrong with him? Why aren't they doing something to help this kid?? Andrew stayed away from him and everything was ok. None of the other students would even talk to the kid. They all surrounded Andrew all day. Ok, so that's about it. Being a single mother is a HUGE job! LOL As always, I love you guys! Laurie
Hi All! If you have read my blog in "Freaking Grrrr!!!" you will know what I'm rambling on about now. If you haven't read it yet, this might make more sense to you if you read that one first. ~Tomorrow~ I'm thinking about the hearing tomorrow, and trying to decide how I will handle the situation. In my past experiences dealing with school officials, I have found that they have made up their minds long before I walk through the door, and talking to them is like talking to a brick wall. Andrew has never been in trouble before, so I don't know what to expect with this meeting. BTW, the kid who attacked Andrew got 7 days out of school/tech. I'm not sure when his hearing is. He might get more. Anyway, I want to defend Andrew in what happened. He has been putting up with crap from this kid for the past 2 months. I want to know what the school is going to do to stop this kid from not only harrassing Andrew, but other people in the school too. Obviously Andrew's instructor has way too much on his plate to be able to keep an eye on all of his students. Andrew is still upset about this whole mess, and gets a bit perturbed when his classmates pat him on the back and say, "it's about time someone kicked DSes ass!" Now if Andrew was the type to go jumping other kids, do you think he would have this attitude? NO! He would be strutting around like a proud peacock. There is no strut in Andrew's step. He's disgusted by the whole thing. So, what do you think I should do about handling the hearing? Any suggestions are welcome! As always, I love you guys! Laurie
