I’m a little surprised at the responses here from the educational community. “Budget reasons” are not a legal reason to exclude a disabled child from anything, and are opening up the school for a lawsuit, and a safety plan in any circumstance where safety is an issue is the responsibility of the school.

I’d make sure that the school will offer a trained 1:1 aide for the child, since that is apparently what they expect from the parent to ensure safety – and I would ask them for a written version of the safety plan they are going to implement to address the safety concerns they expressed in their original email.
