Can home school district refuse to let difficult child return? A plan was made by staff at beginning of school year that in order to reenter home school district, difficult child would have to meet requirements by end of 9-wk. grading period (regular attendance, passing grades, and no problems with behavior). difficult child has met those requirements. I recently spoke with admin. at alternative school. Unfortunately, he will recommend that difficult child stay at alternative school because he has trouble focusing. difficult child wants to return to home school district. He feels that is a better educational environment for him. A few notes: Met with home school district staff in early October. school district psychologist to reevaluate to see if difficult child is eligible for Special Education. (permission form mailed early Nov. and awaiting next steps). Also, at that meeting, the principal made a suggestion that difficult child might do work-study; part of his studies would be done at home school district. We have a meeting coming up soon to see if difficult child can return to home school district and are doing our best to get prepared.
