have posted on here before about my now 16 y/o daughter. Thought we had an alternative school for her finally. She chose it. Started her off slow going a couple of hours first week then a few more the next. Had some trouble getting her there a few times. This last week they wanted her to stay until 12:17 and do group therapy. She's not keen on group and refused to go. Met with principal and he had said don't need to go to group but need to stay in building until 12:17. For whatever reason in her head she wants out at 11:30. The school finally decided that it wasn't working because she wasn't meeting them half way. She also thinks that since going to repeat the 10 th grade anyway since missed so much time she doesent need to be in school until sept. That's when she wants to start. So her school district called the state on us to report us for educational neglect. They came to house and heard the story. Not a lot they can do. Have a meeting with school district tomorrow and I think they are going to go the residential route again. This would have to be out of state since we don't have any boarding schools in this state other than for drug and alcohol issues. Just can't make this kid understand that she needs to be in school even if going to repeat a grade. She could start making up credits now and over the summer. Have told her she can get a job over summer but I don't know if she would get hired by anyone. Someone suggested volunteering at the local hospital to show her how lucky she is.
