Venable Village Elementary School Reviews
This school does not make any effort to support special needs children in the general education environment. My grandchild is supposed to be in regular kindergarten with inclusion. He is encouraged by other children at a higher level to succeed and will quickly pick up a skill if given the chance. They decided within a couple days (yes just a couple days in kindergarten) to put him in life skills special education and label him for the rest of his life. He would be at the top of the totem pole in life skills and be given no incentive to excel. He is being told he can't instead of he can. This occurred without the permission or acceptance from his parents. Because the district did not offer him his legally due occupational therapy (OT) last year - he has difficulty cutting with a scissors and sometimes with verbalizing (the tongue is a muscle). He is "all there" cognitively - he is just behind in muscular skills. The decision to move him was in violation of his legal ARD last year which decided to place him in regular kindergarten. Killeen ISD in general is way behind the curve in following the laws regarding special education.
