My child is ADHD we have IP meeting before and after school that requires the vice principal his teacher and special ed teacher to be at. This is on there time to review where my son is and what we needs to meet his goals for the grade period. He has a lot of late days or days he misses due to the dr. Apts. I do receive letters of concerns I know the school is doing there job while as a mother I'm doing mine.

Teaching staff is amazing my child requires extra time and help. The time and effort put into that has made a difference in his learning education. The programs in NC are like no other when it comes too making sure no child is left behind.
will go above and beyond to fix problems and find answers, school nurse is great and on top of things
