Today the in school suspension monitor brought two students into my classroom. It completely disrupted our rhythm and routine that I have worked so hard to build with my students. Yes, there will be disruptions. Yes, kids with autism need to learn to accept change. But, having in school suspension in my room? Does that seem fair? Or legal? The kids were sitting at MY kiddos desks, and this was bothering them, to the point of complete and utter distraction. One child was repeating "who's that boy who's that boy who's that boy" because her autism causes her to seriously perseverate on things. I just find it outright disrespectful that this would be okay to happen in a classroom. I am a teacher, we are a class, my students are students at the school. Why is it okay to have ISS in my room? I was told "what is different about having it in your room than having it in a third grade room?" And I responded with "well what IS different, why dont you have it in a third grade room where disruptions and change are not a problem?" the response was "we'd never do it in a third grade room..... you only have five students! Your room is perfect. There are two adults and five students!" How does that make it okay? Does anyone have a legal side to this? Is it not confidentiality breaching to have an extra adult in the room who has no interest in my kids education? What about random regular ed punk misbehaving kids?? IS it fair that THEY are being "sent" to be "Punished" by being put in a classroom of kids with moderate to severe disabilities? I am really just irate so I guess I'll stop talking. If anyone has any ideas for me (legally, etc.) that would be greatly appreciated. Thanks ahead of time.
