Kieriana's school

Kieriana and I get to go visit her school today. Frankie's going to be able to come for a bit too. She's going to be evaluated to determine her placement.

It's a BOCES school for children with emotional and psychological difficulties. Her tantrums and "freaking out" has caused the district to decide that she can't be placed in a "normal" kindergarten class this year. They said that this new school will be temporary.

I know the principle's wife. She's told me all about the school and from what she's said it sounds pretty good. They have 5 psychologists on staff who work with the kids on a daily basis. The classes are determined by academic skill and the emotional stability (or lack thereof) of the children. So she won't be held back academically and she won't be placed with children who have more difficulties than she does.

I'm a bit nervous. I really want to homeschool her but I feel that I just can't provide all that she needs at this time. It's a difficult decision to put her in this school. One that I've actually agonized over.

But there comes a time where you have to recognize that your ideals may not be the best for a given situation. Sometimes you have to step way outside your comfort zone.
