Can someone please tell me why the Coffee County school System is spending thousands of money, they say we do not have, on a Behavior specialist and has for a couple of years, when we have on in our county. He has been seen at the Middle school SEVERAL times to help the same children.(With no change since he has been coming).
If we have to hire someone, then that person is not doing the Job they were hired to do. WHAT are they doing, Oh yea, taking notes and reporting what they have saw.(That does not work).

If he has been coming for a couple of years and working with the same kids with no change. I think it is time to go another route.

Hey...What works for some may not work for others and what looks good on paper is not a realistic treatment for others.

I don't think either person with the "Specialist" degree know what they are doing.

Hey, how are the skittles working out for behavior.. Here is a tip for ya....If you are giving a child candy to redirect behavior, that child is going to see that as a REWARD, NOT a PUNISHMENT and they behavior continues....

A teacher with special certification can be a behavioral specialist and be used for both purposes, thus no extra spending.

You are right...However, the person that is doing it for Coffee County is not doing their job, so they have hired someone out of county, to help and he has not been any help. You can not come in and look on the side lines at a childs behavior, for only a few minutes every month and decied what is best, when the behavior is not prompted the same everytime.

Again you are right about your comment, I just wish they would learn to do their job instead of hiring someone else to do it.

Is the teacher that is with this child documenting with the other person coming in to analyze the documentation/study? This person may also be a psychologist specializing in difficult cases, which the BOE does not have on staff. Plus, if this child is special ed, then that money is federal and only for that special case, so the BOE isn't loosing any money or spending any of their own. Special ed is a whole different realm of funding.

if you are not happy with the district, you can request an iee(independent evaluation) from a specialist of your choosing that meets the districts guidelines at no cost to you. for more information about iee and other evaluations you can read up at wrightslaw.com

All children do not respond to @$$ whoopin's.

I'm sure many of you will come back and say that I'm not whipping it hard enough. I assure you I am. Whippings do not work with all children. I'm beginning to wonder if they work with any.

I also agree that to much money is spent outside the county. Keep it here and deal with our own problems when u get help from other people from other places it makes it look like no one from here can solve the problem. Coffee has a bunch of smart people working in the system. Get advise from them, they may know the child and I am sure someone can help solve the problem.

you misunderstood,my daddy didn't have to whip all the time.Sugar all he had to do was look at us and we knew what was coming if we continued.Now you are right,it doesn't work on all but 3 out of 4 wasn't such a bad average ,Try it.
Yesterday I went shopping with some friends,saw a sweet looking little girl of about 6 roll her eyes,sneer at her mother, and speak like she was the adult. the mother of course said very little and kept moving. I don't know if a butt whiping would have helped but I was willing to find out. Such small children with such adult attitudes,wonder where they get it from.
and then

And then if said adult started whipping his child in public, every last one of you would have been mortified and called DFACS. A parent is darned if he does and darned if he don't.

Look at the millions and millions of adults that were disiplined in schools by spankings and also at home spankings that went on to be productive adults. Now ya'll know I am not speaking of abuse...that is a complete different topic. If my mama even threatened a spanking I straightened up and would get another one when daddy came home if I sassed her!

I believe in the best book on behavior and it says .... spare the rod and spoil the child.
Even a child with special needs understands punishment.
That new fangled raising kids ideas by Dr Spock is a fairy tale.

Coffee County School kids need Behavior Specialists. More than one. What else needs to be said?
