The David Swanson Story

Welcome!

Hello

This site is dedicated to the fight against discrimination and the unlawful practices of Sutter County Superintendent of Schools, and Yuba City Unifed School District in Yuba City, CA

August 15, 2013
David: I was driven to school by my Private Duty Nurse and Direct Support attendant because SCSOS never sent the school bus to pick me up. When I got there I was told I had to leave. I was not welcome there and neither was my Nurse.

The California Dept of Education was sued by the American Diabetes Association and in a settlement they agreed to, Diabetic students have legal rights to the administration of insulin by licensed nurses, parents, or a non employee the parent designates. However, despite these laws in place to protect Diabetic students, Schools like SCSOS, believe those laws can be twisted to fit their school policies or even worse...that their policies supersede the law.

Won't you help me? Please call and write the California Dept of Education and tell them to force Sutter County Superintendent of Schools to comply with the law and allow David to go to school with the medical supports he needs!

UPDATE: By FedEx I received confirmation that the California Dept of Education has now opened a case and investigation into the non compliance of SCSOS with State Corrective Actions, and the numerous new allegations of non compliance with IDEA, 504 and ADA since banning David from any school in either district, with his private nurse August 15th, 2013

A Retaliation and violations of Special Education Ed Code 56046 complaint and investigation has begun, and assigned a case number. 

I have completed my Due Process Hearing written requests and will file those on Monday morning. CDE is starting to recognize they have enabled SCSOS discrimination. The SCSOS governing board has not taken any corrective actions against the misconduct and violations of Ed code 56046 by Director Barbara Hickman or Superintendent Bill Cornelius and the determinations by the U.S. Dept of Education, Office of Civil Rights, (OCR) has effectively shown equal liabilities for CDE, the elected GOVERNING BOARD, & SCSOS Director of Special Education, Barbara Hickman & elected Superintendent, Bill Cornelius actions/inactions. If YOUR Special Education student has been discriminated against by the Sutter County Superintendent of Schools -please contact me on facebook and join our Parent Advocacy Group. It is our intent to have our school district board member and Superintendent offices be filled with non discriminatory, ethical and professional Administrators. Best Wishes!

My Journal

My private duty nurse and advocate, Annette Armstrong, has been my 1:1 human insulin pump for 5 years and knows my communication, education and autism needs. I have autism and type 1 diabetes. I cannot speak. I am non-verbal. I use an ipad, sign language and some vocalizations to communicate.

My Parent/Advocates requested 504 accommodations on August 19th, 2013 at my IEP meeting for my private nurse to accompany me to class because the school has no trained staff to help administer insulin and count my carbohydrates at lunch and snack times. Those requests were denied. Instead they tried to get my Parent/Advocate to agree to a $86,000 settlement offer. She refused, she refuses to give up my rights to FAPE, Discrimination Remedies and OCR Corrective Actions.

I hope to raise awareness of the harmful blanket policies and abusive practices that continue at SCSOS in regards to Diabetic and Autistic Students. Atrocities repeated by many CA School Districts and the California Department Of Education's in-actions that allow it to continue. After all, I'm not alone- this dangerous deprivation of Student rights under 504/IDEA will likely cause serious injury and/or death if they are left to "investigate" and :monitor" themselves.

 David Wilde SAYS IT PERFECTLY!! WILDEMAN'S WORDS

 
I am an advocate for autism now sharing my own fantasy universe to show just what people can do in spite of limitations (like my hands). I'm writing an ongoing story on myblogspot, have a facebook fanpage and more. I have one novel being considered by agents.

I want to network and learn with other artists and writers. I also just want to share.

Mom: School endangers, discriminates against diabetic, autistic son
YUBA CITY, CA - The mother of a student with severe autism and diabetes said the school is putting her son at risk by not allowing a private duty nurse to accompany her son on campus.

June 21 2013: Feeling Strong

Sutter County Superintendent of Schools would like me to never come to school and would like it if I never enrolled again in any school in the District. Rude.
