Yes Dr Rockey, thats what we need more of in RCS. Looks like she is spending her summer recruiting kids and sending strange letters to the Post Journal. Very strange letter indeed

Thank you Director of Pupil Services. It is awesome to hear that there are some people out there trying to do what is best for children with disabilities in schools. Not everyone is the same and it's great for someone to recognize that and do what he/she can for all children. Hats off to you!

I have a problem with an educator offering help outside her district and making this offer without the true knowledge of this child's background! To me, she acted very unprofessional both towards the child's actual needs and her school district!!

At least their spelling and English skills are good. Are yours? You're right 50s schools have no business teaching social skills. Let's abolish all sports and let the parents build their own sports fields, and keep money spent in those in education.

My question is, why did the Randolph parent think her child could not be served within the Randolph School District? Is it because they truly live outside of the district? Thank you, Dr. Rockey for this very emphatic letter and keep up the great work at Randolph School system. America needs more like you! :)

Schools have no business spending double the money to teach social skills.

"Very few good Schools in the USA." That's a bit harsh. Maybe we're not up there with all those great schools in Mexico, Cuba and Venezuela, and I'm sure there's always room for improvement. But come on now, there are a lot of good Schools in this area, and plenty of other areas.

Every school district I've been to has the distinction of poor service. There are very few good schools in the USA and that's an ashame.

My guess is wanting to make sure everyone knows that kid doesn't go to Randolph and that the "poor service" we're not provided by this author's district. My question is, why was this printed?
