Play ground supervision needs to be improved ! The Georgia best practices need to be reviewed. Teachers with IEP children and children with disabilities need to be followed up on at the beginning of school year to be sure children are being accommodated and in an inclusive plan. If your teacher has been there for years maybe she still needs an extra refreshment on protocols and Georgia standards . " I didn't know" is not an excuse , a child should be totally in the teacher's folder on that first day of school all things to know. If anything is missing she needs to contact school office for impertinent information and see it is included. If a child is hurt ,that child is to be checked or taken to school nurse ,accident report and copies made out and parent / care taker notified immediately ! One bad link in chain can cost a child her or his life or future .......
