While we wait for our wait pool letters, I was wondering if you could start a topic about problems encountered during kindergarten. For example, my son (July birthday) is currently in a private kindergarten. He's having behavior problems and could possibly be ADHD. Its been suggested if he were to stay at this school, he would have to repeat kindergarten. We've applied for SFUSD schools, we're currently 0 for 7 and hope for a good school. But now I'm worried, what school would be appropriate for him? How do you find out about services or classroom set ups that can accommodate us? If the private school suggests repeating kindergarten, can I enroll him in 1st grade at public? What if I need to enroll him in K, how would that affect our assigned school?
I would love to hear of personal experiences with this issue, though I realize most of your readers are new to the system. Also suggestions of resources would be very helpful.
