Thanks so much for the thoughtful reply. We are located in pa and have private school options, however they are way outside our budget. We are really stuck trying to make it work with the public school and we moved to one of the best districts in the state for exactly that reason. I have been reading and printing and highlighting all day, and sometimes I feel like we will never succeed in these meetings. I'm learning to stand my ground a little more each time though. I'll keep you posted on how my meeting goes next Thursday.
