We got the entire school records for W&C to use as evidence. We didn't actually get it till after the postponement, so I guess it's sort of good that we were postponed.

Will has:

K and half of 1st - school number one
half of 1st - school number two
2nd and part of grade 3 - school number three
part of grade 3 and all of grade 4 - school number four

Then he did 5th, 6th & 7th and now started 8th with us. Two different schools, but only because of elementary/middle school difference.

He missed so many days of school with her!

K - 13
1st - 27!!!!
2nd - 19
3rd - missing details from the first school, but 2 days from the second school from Feb - June.
4th - 14 (but he also missed from December to March when she said she was homeschooling them).

5th - 1
6th - 1 for illness and 2 for being suspended
7th - 1 for illness and 3 for suspension
8th - none so far

Clayton has:

Pre-K at school number 1
K and part of 1st at school number 2
part of 1st and all of 2nd at school number 3

With us he did all of 3rd, 4th & 5th at one school and moved up to middle school now.

Absences:

Pre-K - 6 (but he was only in the school for 57 days anyway)
K - 14.5
1st - 1 from February to June (missing details for his other half of 1st grade)
2nd - 12 (plus same as Will from December through March for "homeschooling")

3rd - 0
4th - 0
5th - 1
6th - none so far

Seriously? Seriously, she's better for the kids? OMG, the crack she's smoking.

I know! One year she gave Neely a copy of his report card for 1st grade. It was 3rd quarter. He had missed 15 days. In one quarter. There are only 45 days per quarter. That's 1/3rd! How does she expect him to learn like that?

And it also speaks to why they struggled so much when they got to school here. One because they missed 3 months of school for her "homeschooling" fiasco the year before, but also because they just missed so much schooling, in general.

BLAH!!!!
Missing school really really gets me irritated. I missed less days from K to 6 than Clayton did in Pre K. They started adding up after that cause the illnesses got worse.

My mom had a rule. If you don't have one end or the other glued to the toilet you aren't sick and you aren't staying home. Reme's schools all have Fever rules...and since he spikes a fever with EVERYTHING, he loses more time than he should. But he's also a total grouch when he's sick and we don't hate his teachers.

Yeah, we have that rule too, but we do have to keep them home with a fever greater than 100.

My kids didn't miss 27 days in their whole middle school-high school career. If you add up elementary school, they may have had that many, but holy crap, 27 in one year is insane.

Holy crap that's a lot of days. I don't even think T has that many days out and she's in the 11th grade. Maybe with her and Kev combined they might. That's insane.

that is awful, we're doing the same thing now too though, DH is getting copies of everything from the school and gets phone calls as well when they miss because Ethan missed so much school in Kindergarden he couldn't go to 1st grade and had to go to T-1 and it wasn't because he was sick.. it was because she either wanted to take him with her to work or because he threw a fit and she didn't wanna fight with him... no joke.
so far this year he is going with no trouble, hopefully it stays that way.

I'm glad you got more proof how awful she is

I never thought to check into O's Kindergarten records. We have access to them now. He misses no days with us, but for a cough a few weeks ago she kept him home Mon, Tues, Wed.

This was 2 weeks after she claimed he had head lice and STILL sent him to school!

27 days is a lot. How did he not get dropped? We (the school I work at) drop after 10 days.

Eh... I guess I dont see it as too bad depending on the kid. Lily was REALLY sick in Kindergarten... it was her first time around a bunch of kids and she seriously was sick like half the year. The only reason she wasn't held back was because she was so advanced that she was still ahead of everyone else during her time off. Kids get sick, some kids have **** immune systems. Of course if its not a valid sickness and just a "stay home for fun" day, it doesnt count. But some kids just have really crappy immune systems.

They weren't consecutive days, except for when she "homeschooled" them and she properly withdrew them at that time.

I could maybe buy into that except that they aren't getting sick now and haven't really been sick apart from minor colds and one or two incidents of things in the 3+ years we've had them. I would think if it were an immune system thing, that would have carried with them.

What it was is that she allowed them to stay home whenever they said they didn't "feel good". Apparently Will learned early on how to work his mom.

Good grief!!! As far as staying home. If you're home from school you get no privileges like tv or games etc. you can read and sleep. Period.
My kids tried to get over on me and I've had to be strict. I like my quiet day at home when they are in school. Lol
