We have a strong 504 in place - it notes that we need 3 trained people to care for Cooper.... school has only 1. This has come up several times this year - has not been resolved. Here's today's example... Summer school meeting - it starts in 2 weeks, there are 3 days left of school. The school would not pay the 1 trained person enough money to make it worth her while to work summer school, so she said no. So they found another person, with no medical background but has worked with some D students a few years ago. They have asked that she accompany Cooper and I on a field trip to the zoo so that she can be trained, by me - field trip is tomorrow.. Friday is half day - and is a field event day. Kids are outside doing track and field events - fun. Thursday would be the only normal kind of routine day. And, next week she can contact the CDE at the local hospital for some further training... The county RN (who is supposed to be in charge) - said that she can call the local hospital CDE if there are problems or someone at the county. Granted the CDE will probably be of help, however has never treated Cooper or worked an Omnipod pump. The County RN's have never worked a CGM or Omnipod pump - so basically they are worthless. Why even waste a call to them?? And, by having to train this new person the last 3 days of regular school is not fair to Cooper. At the zoo - do I really want to be training this person on alarms, how to respond, what to do, explaining the CGM, how to work the pump etc?? NO, I want to enjoy the field trip with MY CHILD! An on the Field Day - it's not fair that he would have to miss time with his friends, to help train this person on his equipment... The school has had plenty of time - ALL YEAR - to have more trained personnel, and have never done it! I've canceled summer school classes for my kids at this point, and am contacting the State for further direction.. we'll see about OCR.. This mad dash at the end of the year, is not fair to my child!
