My daughter has been thru hell this past, year, I have been thru hell, mind you I do take blame that I went thru a depressed state and wasn't being the best parent I could be regarding school work and such.
She has missed quite a bit of school this semester, dh calls in to excuse her, she has been sick (we finally found out what was making her sick if an xray was done 3 months ago she would have been fine sooner)
anyway she is on a 504 plan which gives her more time to do make up work etc and explains why she has been having the problems she has her depression and anger etc.
I go to pick her up today to have a follow up with her doctor and they say I need to come in next week to do a 504 plan,I say we already did that in January, I guess they need to do it again.
I check my email and see an email from both the vp and counselor saying due to dd missing so many days that she will not get credit for this semester (even if she passes all her classes and mind you she has all her missed work caught up and turned in) so if she gets all A's they won't give her credit because she missed to much school.
NOW if it was skipping and being truant etc sure I understand but that is not the case.
Oh and they are making her due that (they call it sulk lunch)it is where they are isolated and have to eat the pbj sandwiches and they are making her do this because she was behind on work and she did (DID) have two F's but now she has everything turned in (she is according to the 504 plan have two weeks extra to get that work in) I know of at least 4 kids failing classes none of them are in this sulk lunch.
So I am not happy, dd is finally FINALLY where she is liking being back at school and being around her friends, now they say she has to go to an alternative school or not get credit, taking her away from her friends is not a good idea either, they do their homework together etc.
I don't know what to do, luckily they haven't said anything to her about, you won't get any credits this year due to missing so much school because then I know dd will just say "I give up"
I am going to the higher ups on this, of course last time I did they said they don't control what goes on at the school it is up to the Principal an VP for that school what is to be done, which doesn't sound right.
