Unfortunately, in this wealthy, "world-class" district, this behavior is not unusual. There are several families with kids who use communication devices. They had to fight for them, and are still fighting to get the AT dept. and the district to understand what these kids need to support their communication skills. The district either does not understand or does not want to. They have been quite successful at intimidating and ignoring parents - so this case must have been a real shock. I hope it will be a wake-up call to finally make some change here!


I feel that our district 129 is also holding our childs device hostage. Can a school district require parents to sign contracts that would make parents responsible for the cost of repairs (or replacement $8K) before the child is allowed to bring their communication device home from school daily? Keeping in mind, the entire IEP team has recommended the device absolutely be used across all environments.
