Go get em Sandy!!!!
Take a note pad, a pen and a tape recorder if you feel comfortable with it. Take notes and then email a followup to everyone in the meeting as soon as you can assess your notes. Make and keep a paper trail.
Do not leave without a plan!!! Your stance needs to be my DD is moving forward at the end of the school year, what is their plan to make that happen. Be a willing participant in the plan but the onus is on them to make said plan.
Make sure you get some kind of daily or weekly update. We used a composition book for a communication book that we and the teachers would write in daily.

Is the special ed coordinator going to be there? Is this an informal meeting or the premise for an IEP or 504? Do not sign anything until you read it all!! They may try to throw a 504 or IEP at you, especially since they are already reducing the amount of work her sisters do. IEP's and 504's are good though, They have to follow them to a T, it's the law, which would include giving lesson plans for the stuff she missed while in tutoring.
I went through the same thing. DS11 was missing instruction due to being in intervention for reading and math. I gave them holy hell over all of it. The IEP was used to my advantage because I made them do their jobs and supply us with everything.

Thank you so much ladies.

Buffy thanks for the info. I will look into the equivalent in Canada. I'm sure we have such thing. As for the taperecorder, it;s a bit no no there. I gues they don't want you to use it against them LOL

I was laughing about the B mom comment. I'm sure mine girls file all say the same. I walk in the place and everyone know me. Not only do they know me because it's the triplets mom but because I know what I want and how to get it. It seems like February is piss the triplets mom off annually.
