Theres a situation at my school that is bad for all involved- the student, all the other students in the grade level, and all the staff in that hallway. The student is not mine so there may be relevant background information that might make a difference. There is a special ed student (and the fact that I know he is in sped is a problem in itself but it's not hard to figure out when the sped team is chasing him) who has repeatedly assaulted students and staff as well as disrupted all classes from the violent outbreaks in the hallway. One of my students has been targeted by this student and the student has reported bullying because of his ethnicity to campus admin as per our procedures. At least one other student was assaulted in the hallway. Two teachers were assaulted. He has run into random classrooms and tried to assault students or staff in that room. My students have asked me to keep the door locked and we only take restroom breaks when this child is not in the hallway. From what I've heard during the ruckus is that the student refuses to go into his assigned inclusion classroom and has meltdowns in the hallway. I'm not an official mentor to one of the teachers involved but she has asked for my help in knowing what to do next. She has asked twice in writing for an ARD but one has not yet been scheduled. I don't think the child's placement is the right one since my students are in danger because of his presence. I fear for my teammates' safety. I can't speak to his educational goals but he spends very little time in his inclusion room so you don't have to be a genius to figure out he isn't getting any educational lessons since they are focused on keeping him from hurting others. I am not in a union state but most of us are in a professional organization with legal help. I have considered calling to see what I can do to protect my kids. That was the only advice I know to offer my teammate. Call for legal advice since her requests locally have been ignored. Any other ideas? I feel for her and don't want her to leave teaching because of this one kid.
