I'm a little worried about posting this here but I could really use some advice so I'm hoping it will be alright.
I pulled my dd out of school 2 yrs ago to homeschool her. She was very behind and not doing well at all. It was really sad when I pulled her, her teacher actually looked relieved and happy about it.
I now think I need to send her back to public school and don't know how. I am afraid of the reaction I may get from the school because she is still very much behind. I keep having her tested and it's always at a 3rd grade level. She should have began her freshman year of High School this year.
I can't get her to do anything and I need help. Counseling, when I could make her go did nothing to help.
Where do I go and how do I get her back into the public school system? How do I get her help. Will we be in trouble because she is behind? What can we expect? Thanks for any thoughs and advice.
Has she been tested for learning disabilities? If not, I would start there first and go from there.

You go to the school in your district and ask what the enrollment policy is. They HAVE to enroll her if you live within district boundaries. They will MOST likely start the process of RTI and determine if she has a learning disability. The downfall is that the process of RTI , and determining whether or not a child needs an IEP, is a LONG one, and she probably will struggle in her regular education classes at first. Ask about school tutoring programs. You can even look into a Sylvan, or Huntington Learning center for additional help.
