Specifically, do you feel like others in your school understand the process for determining eligibility for sped services? I had three referrals for sped from the same grade level. None of the students wound up qualifying. The parents accepted it and moved on. One also really did not want services anyway, so it wasn't a huge deal to them. But now every time one of these kids does badly on a test or gets in trouble, the teachers say to me something to the effect of "and they said this kid doesn't need special education services?" or "I just don't understand how a kid who is this far behind doesn't qualify..." This happens at least once a week. And I understand that these kids are struggling. But one thing we talked about at our meetings is that they are making progress (albeit slowly) with in class and small group interventions. Their psych-ed. evals showed they do not have learning disabilities (at least by the narrow definition of learning disability we have to use) and they don't have ADHD, etc. that would allow them to qualify in another category. Simply put, these kids are not struggling because they have a disability and as much I want to help I'm limited in what I can do because I can't serve them if they don't qualify. I'm not going to fudge data to make it look like they do. I am not okay with that. My admins are aware of the situation, and I know they have spoken with them, but it's still frustrating and makes me feel guilty even though logically I know can't do anything to change the overall situation.
