To make what could be a very long story short, I was told the school cannot provide difficult child with an education. He refuses to do class work/participate over 60% of the time. The only good thing that was going was he was doing his work part of the day without any problems for the last 4 months, but the jobsite he was working at is slow right now and there isn't anything for him to do so they (work) tried him on a different job and now he refuses to work. The school does have other options (a Pace program that is actually through the district we physically live in, sending him back to the high school out of the transition program he is currently in, graduate him as he is or the teacher questioned him going to a Residential Treatment Center (RTC)) Of these options only the Pace program or graduating him are workable in my opinion. AND getting him to buy into switching schools at this point (he's 19) is going to be a very hard sell. He'd like nothing more than to sit home, sleeping all day and gaming all night. So, he would say only graduating him this year is workable, but he is not anywhere near ready for that. I wish I knew what to do. I'm not looking for solutions, probably only looking for pity, but if anyone has input throw it out there.
