husband came up with-an idea to send difficult child to a local public HS but in a different neighborhood. On top of it, it is a magnet school for arts, English and communication, and difficult child has been recommended for advanced placement English. We are going to suggest to the judge when we go to court next week that difficult child be transferred to that school instead of the one in which we are zoned, because of the fear of retribution from the druggies difficult child snitched on. I have emailed the middle school guidance counselor to get a copy of the advanced placement paperwork. I hope she checks her email in the summer. This is separate from the other items I am working on. Fingers crossed! This would save us a lot of money, and would give difficult child the opportunity to be mainstreamed, but away from the deadbeats he hung with. Yes, lots of driving for me, but wth.
