So I had a good talk with difficult child about her missing school. She admitted to me that she does not like this new school because she doesn't have any friends there. All her friends from middle school went to our home high school nearby our house. The only reason why difficult child didn't go to our home school is because that school doesn't have an ED program there. So she got transferred to the school we are at now. She is in a very restricted environment and hates it. We tried to get her mainstreamed at her last IEP meeting but the teachers and school psychiatric didn't want her in regular classes. So now difficult child is begging me to get her transferred to her home school. She has several friends from middle school who go there. The only problem with it is she would be in all mainstreamed classes, even math which is her biggest challenge. They do have Special Education RSP classes at that school but they are just special resource classes with no emotional or behavior support. So now the question is whether or not to give her what she is wishing for and have her transferred. I definitely don't like her being in all ED classes at the school she's at now, but for her tough subjects, which are math and science, she really does need the extra support. It will be quite challenging to have her in all mainstreamed classes. Granted, they will be smaller special resource classes, but not ED. Do I take a risk, transfer her, and have her either sink or swim in this new school? I'm afraid it will not work out in the long run and we will have her transferred for nothing. difficult child swears she will start attending school on a regular basis if we have her transferred. I just don't know if it's worth the risk. I have no idea what to do.
