I'm so frustrated right now, I want to cry! (Vent, long)
All throughout my childhood I moved a lot and went to a bunch of crap schools. I wanted my DD to go to one school district throughout her school career starting with preschool. I found a beautiful house less than 5 minutes from an awesome school. Checked a district Map to make sure she would go to the school I wanted her in. We bought it and started to settle down. She has gone to the preschool in the district for the past two years made a bunch of friends and started to become a part of the community. Today was kindergarten registration day so I got all organized and excited that my little girl was about to start real school. Well, we go there today and find out the district map I looked at wasn't completely accurate and we live right in a "thumb" of the other district (the crap school here). I almost started crying at the registration department, I held it together though.
I don't know what to do because I don't want her to go to the other school and open registration is over for this school. I emailed the county auditor, the superintendent, the vice superintendent, and another person that I can't remember to see if we could have the district lines changed. I doubt that will happen but I might as well try. I just don't know what I can do to keep her with her friends. I don't have the money/credit to sell our house and buy a new one at the moment.
Sorry this is all over the place, please excuse any errors. I just feel like my hopes and dreams are shattering at the moment. Maybe I'll look back and think I was silly for making such a big deal out of it but this is in the moment. I hold education and stability at a high place and this has turned me into an emotional wreck.
So far I think my options are: deal with the crap school until we can move, home school until we can move (I only don't want to do that because my DD is an only child and needs interaction with other children), rent some cheap studio in the school district and lie about owning a home outside of the district, or hope that we can change the district lines before summer is over.
Anyone know if there are and deadlines that I have to have her signed up for kindergarten by?
