I’m looking at the parochial schools for my kids but I’m receiving a lot of pushback. When I ask how do you handle handicapped kids, what accommodations do you make for handicapped kids, do you have any tutoring in the diocese that help with Spina Bifida, Autism, other handicapped kids, no one wants to answer my question.This makes me mad because
-They aren’t answering my question
-they claim the diocesan schools perform equal or better than FFX County tho’ I’m questioning if both systems teach all kids: ESL, mental/physical disabilities/etc thus Fairfax County would be much better because they take in everyone
-Under ADA, which covers Autism to Lupus to Schizophrenia, don’t all schools have to accept handicapped kids
-you’d think a Prolife diocese would run a school system that helps families with other talented kids.:mad:
The Fairfax County schools IEP the kids and give them extra special ed within the schools. I can’t get a straight answer if the Diocesean schools provide a version of special ed.
Anyone have any knowledge/experience in the Arlington VA diocesan schools in the past 5 years? Experience from a generation ago is surely outdated. Thanks.
