Day two of school and advocacy is required on behalf of children. The first is a (hopefully) minor schedule change for Kiki and should be completed quickly. However Kiki is a bit overwhelmed by high school and will likely need extra support for at least a month.
The second case for advocacy is going to be much longer and more complicated. For the first time I have identified an administrator who is an obstacle to my children having a good school experience. I believe he means well, but this does not change the fact that I am having to do significant emotional clean-up work with my kids. The good news is that the teachers are great. It is possible that strong alliances with the teachers will nullify any problems with the larger school administration. But that is not the way it should be. For now I am watching closely and keeping records.
ETA: This was a tired day. That colors my impressions, which is why all actions are waiting on further evidence.
