I'd love to hear from anyone who has experienced a less than professional IEP meeting with teachers, staff and administration personnel from the Tipton County School System.

The problem is the Tipton County School System does not really know "what to do with special ed students." I don't mean that the way it may come across. What I am saying is Tipton County is very unprofessional when it comes to kids in special education. Some of the brightest students in the County are in special ed programs for a variety of reasons. I have a couple of friends who are teachers and they have said many times they "hate going to IEP meetings." This means that parents of SPED kids often get a rushed, unprofessional meeting. I also have heard regular ed teachers take potshots at SPED teachers before claiming they don't do any real teaching and don't work as hard. If anything, these are the best teachers in the county and it takes a special person to work with students who have disabilities. My personal opinion, but it is time for the Tipton County School System to find a new superintendent. He is a good man but Tim Fite has been there too long. The school system needs some fresh blood.

If you have a child that has IEP meetings you have a state lawyer to fight on your behalf. You as a parent where told that at the very begining I was. You have to look in your paper work from where your child was first tested it a green paper that is a bill of rights. the number is in there.
