West Carroll School District violates standards
A West Carroll mother and her daughter who has Autism Spectrum Disorder are disappointed with their school system.
WBBJ reported that Ryanne Parker's daughter has been in the West Carroll School District since she was in kindergarten. When Parker saw report cards and response to intervention that didn't add up, she started asking questions.
Parker's daughter's Individual Education Plan (IEP) wasn't working for her, but she wasn't alone. In an investigation, the Tennessee Department of Education found that the district had eight violations.
The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) says each state must provide all eligible children with a public education that meets their needs.
Parker said that after the investigation, her daughter's grades improved in one subject but are still suffering in others.
