Oh Darn it. I didn't copy it .. OK, here goes, I am seeing the super of the district on Monday and need to have some "facts" to argue with. They have already stated that it is not their policy to hold or retain a kid. They just move them to the next grade level and call them Senior defficient credits, which would be my sons grade if he is matriculated as they want to do. I DO NOT want him to be a senior twice..it will be devasting to him to deal with that as he knows he can't graduate with the other REAL seniors.. Another issue is that the new highschool just opened 2 blocks from me and I want my son to do there. They are only accepting 9, 10 and 11th graders and since they want to move my son on, they call him a Senior so he can not attend the new school. Now, next year they will accept Seniors and he could go there then, as he is doing his 2nd Senior year. I give you this backround info just so you may understand what I am dealing with. You stated that there is NO law regarding this but I don't think they are going to cave into that, so I need more to go in there with. I don't see any reason why my son can't be a Junior again, as he is now defficient in credits so he has to go the extra year. Please advise me as to how to handle and approach this. Thank you so much.
