Samuel Gompers Middle School Reviews

By a Parent on

I attempted to enroll my special needs son, into gompers. I was told that an IEP had to be turned in. C.H.L.A. sent gompers an IEP twice. It was misplaced by the staff. After waiting 3 months (The school has 30 days by law, to assign my son to a school. I waited 3 months.) It came to my attention, the IEP had to be done again. YES, AGAIN! Now the process has to be started all over again. I have to wait 30 days, for my son to be placed. During this time, all the staff responsible for the gross negligence, has demonstrated an extremely poor (next to hostile) attitude toward me. I assume, this is due to me reporting their actions to the Principal. At the time I attempted to enroll my son, he would have been placed at a school that was better suited to deal with his needs. Now (that the gompers staff lost the initial paperwok) The school my son needed, is unavailable, my son will be forced to stay at gompers for a 30 day minimum. Also due to the incompetence of the staff, I'll have to stay on campus, with my son, the entire school day. 1 of the requirements of my sons IEP, is that he has an attendant at all times. gompers is not equipped for such needs. So I'll have to stay with him.
