difficult child had A's & B's both at Department of Juvenile Justice, where he was the first 2/3 of the school year, then at his home school. But there are two things I am having an issue with them over. Both pertain to his transferring from Department of Juvenile Justice and then being put into detention after transferring back to this home school district. First: In Algebra, they didn't put his incoming grades in the computer system for waht seemed like forever so when 3rd quarter grades came out, the computer spit out an F. They finally went back and put the grades in, resulting in an A average, however, it didn't change the F on the record so I think the F got sent to the detention center and will be averaged in for the final grade for the year. Second: Department of Juvenile Justice gives high school credits per semester (ie- if a semester is completed, the student gets 1/2 credit even if it's a year ling class), but this school district does not. I don't know what the detention center does. Anyway, difficult child had an A or B in Spanish class. The detention center does not teach Spanish as a rule- they have no Spanish teacher. However, they will work with a home school district and give the kid whatever work a teacher from the school district provides in order for the kid to continue the regular course work since detention is considered short term. Now, the home school district has finished their regular school year so even though detention has school throughout the summer, the home school district will not work with them to provide course work for Spanish so difficult child can make up the last month or so of this class during this summer. The result of this is that he loses the entire credit for the year. He had signed up for Spanish 2 next year. He already told me that if they expected him to take Spanish 1 over because of this, he will forget the whole thing. (Foreign language is not required for the standard diploma. He was going for the advanced diploma and three years of foreign language is required for that.) Neither of us are so worried about him getting the advanced diploma at this point, it just really annoys me that they won't give him credit or work with him to let him make this up. Should I be looking at it like this is a natural consequence for him getting into trouble again, or should I be looking at it like it's not his fault they don't teach Spanish in detention and he shouldn't lose a year's credit when he completed 3/4 of the year and had an A at the end of the time he did put in?
