School's Responsibility About Behavior Intervention?

School's Responsibility About Behavior Intervention?

My daughter is in Kindergarten with a lot of behavior issues. Some are dangerous to others and herself, such as hitting/poking others in face, pulling others' hair hard, getting pushed/dragged by others due her aggression/behavior.

The school only created some daily behavior rating note to monitor and reward her for… read more
