So, I found out today that I have a student with an auto-immune disorder. His accomodations are very extensive--sanitized seating area and supplies daily, must only work with one other child in a group setting, and must always be that same child, cannot move to an alternate location (i.e. library, relocated room, assembly) without prior sanitization of area (if this cannot be provided, I must find someone who can monitor the child while I am with my other students), modification of assignments for mastery (this is an AP class), no tests or quizzes after certain medical treatments for up to a week, no tests or quizzes after missing more than two days for at least two weeks, must have an air purifier in the class (don't know if I have to provide that yet), if other students are sick in the classroom, or appear sick, must be isolated--these are just the ones I remember. I have looked at his past grades and test scores, he is a low B student in Honors courses, probably due to his multiple absences--he's absent at least 8-10 days a month (at least last year). I believe this student has a right to an education, but should it be at the expense of myself and the other students in the class. And this student as well. Isn't this why programs like K-12 Online and Connections Academy were created? To allow children, who for whatever reason don't work in the public schools, to still have opportunity for an education? Am I wrong in feeling like this parent is expecting too much of me and my other students to bend over backwards for this child? How is this child going to function in the world where people will not sanitize for him, etc.
