difficult child told me last week that it doesn't matter if he does his work or not, I can't make him go to summer school because his state tests are to good. When I had my meeting with VP, SW and spec. ed. teacher I asked them about this. Said he needs to KNOW he has to follow rules and he needs to become more responsible bringing books, homework, paper, pens to class. They told me that NO, difficult child could not go to summer school. (test grades came in themail that day) School had the grades. Basic = 450, proficient = 520 Advanced = 570. difficult child scored HIGHER than advanced in every subject he was tested for. Therefore he could not attend summer school. It is remedial, and the school district would not allow it!!! So..he is smart, So he is advanced, gifted whatever...He can't go through life making his OWN rules and doing as he pleases. He needs to be responsible. And If he cannot be responsible then he needs extended education to TEACH him this. They told me there is no way with those test scores he would be able to go.
