Hi, I came here about 6 months ago. I am not in Wake, but looked there too. I saw on the news recently that one of the special ed classes in the Morrisville schools was held in a former bathroom. Having a special ed child myself I was angered and upset. I am not in Wake county schools, but that doesn't matter. What ever school you decide, discuss what is available, take names and get it in writing if possible. My child is not recieving as much services as she was in NY, but thankfully she does have a very attentive teacher and is doing better, maybe its the air....who knows!?! Good luck with your search, and please, please double check what anyone tells you.

When are you planning on moving to the area? If you move to wake county, you can have your son evaluated (for free) through project enlightenment (which is affliated with wake county public schools). Project enlightment is amazing and will be able to give you a diagnosis (if appropriate) and suggest what would help him to succeed within the school system. They can also get him enrolled in integrated preschool programs, if he qualifies. Anyhow, if you are not going to be here prior to his enrollment in the school system, then I would have him privately tested where you are now. Wake County public schools will need a copy of his diagnosis, and then they can meet with you, the special needs liason, his teacher, etc and set up an IEP (Individual education plan) that will be followed by his teacher. Each school is a bit different, but they all function under wake county public schools, so you can call their main office and get some good information.

I would also suggest that you call project enlightenment and see if they can help you in any way. They may be able to give you some advice as far as things you can do before you move, etc.

My daughter attends elementary school in wake forest, north forest pines (which is year round) and we have been quite happy with her teacher and the administrative staff.

Anyhow, hope this helps!

Leigh

Get the full story in that before you go spreading innuendo.

FORMER bathroom...it didn't have kids using it as a restroom at the time...and it was a temp measure until other arrangements were in place.

Also, it was smaller, it couldn't hold a full size classroom...they had to go with a smaller class size. They weren't targeting special ed children.
