for those who may not know or remember here is the original thread i posted http://www.conductdisorders.com/forum/showthread.php?t=21479 so husband kept failing to call the school about the schedule change DSS was supposed to get (personally i believe he was hoping i would just get frustrated and e-mail them or call myself),he finally did it! he called the school yesterday and asked why his schedule had not been changed when they signed a contract and made him sign it too. he said he wanted to know why it had not been done, and the lady's response was "we have no idea sir." she said she would speak to the teachers and see what was going on, but she did have good news! she said hey had received the scores from the aptitude tests back. DSS normally barely breaks even with where he should be placing on the scoring, usually it is a bit low, to be totally honest. she said for the first time in a long time, he has shown signs of major improvement and based on aptitude scores alone, he would pass to the 9th grade! woohoo! downside is, they don't go solely based on those scores. if he fails 2 classes, he will not pass. DSS still does not get this so that battle continues, but i am still totally thrilled over the test scores and how he is improving!
