  • When applying for the charter I told the district office my son had tourettes (but a light case) and a 504, and was told that he probably wouldn't get in because my son could make too much work for their teachers. I said all he needed was a few less spelling words. Then I emailed the
    Superintendent, Noel J. Buehler about the incident, and he never called or emailed. I found the district office rude and hostile to those with disabilities, even minor ones.

  • The Oak Grove Unified School District does not believe that Dyslexia is an Education Disability. Therefore, there is no adequate interventions for a diagnosis of Dyslexia, in our experience with both the Superintendent and the School Special Ed Department.
