I don't know if this helps, but if we stopped with what the school agreed to, or the principal, or the person in charge of elementary school instruction, or the person in charge of special programs, or the gate keeper for the district superintendent, we would not have gotten as far as we did. It was the district superintendent that helped us out. Note if that didn't work I was already speaking with 2 of the school board members. On a side note it�s still not the best fit, but it is better then having DS 8 in 3rd grade.
