Childs application was denied for returning as a tuition paid student - UPDATE IN GREEN
This post is more like a venting post. I'm so upset. I cried most of last night. We're our child to a community school in the county next to us. We do not have a good school systems in our county. So, before he started kindergarten, we applied for him to be a tuition paid student. For those of you who don't know, tuition paid students are students that live in one county, and go to school in another county (that's how it was explained to me). If all funding is approved, there is no fee that's paid by tuition students. We were lucky enough that the community school we were sending him to had all funding approved, and we didn't have to pay. (We would have paid regardless) We received an application last month to re-register him with that same shool system. We received a letter yesterday and they declined the application. And it's because of his attendence. I starting bawling. My son has never been around a large group of kids until he started going to school. We never had any health issues with him either. I'm sure his immune system just isn't as strong as kis who've been around other groups of kids. Since he started kindergarten, he's suffered two ear infections (one I had to take him to the ER), allergies were so out of control that he was treated for a week as an asthmatic patient....twice! As of now, he's missed 15 days of school! There were only 2-3 of those days that I would say were unexcused (his dad had double knee surgery and I had to keep him out because with timing of everything, I wouldn't have been able to pick him up from after school care on time). Twice the school called me to pick him up because he got sick. We all know this has been a bad year for everyone getting sick, and more viruses out there. They're on spring break now. I have a message into the assistant superintendent to call me when they return. Has anyone else ever had this issue. I'm so tired. I couldn't sleep last night. Thanks for listening, and any input is appreciated.
Update: I finally got ahold of the assistant superintendent. She was very nice over the phone. She's going to talk to the principal and the teacher. I'm hanging onto that hope that he'll be able to return there next year. Just had to let some of you know. Thanks for replying to my original post.
Lastest update: Superintendent just called. Ladies, I'm so happy right now! I've been a nervous wreck ever since I posted the original post. The superintendent met with the principal and they're willing to accept my son back into the school. On one condition.....we have to sign a harse contract. I told her I'm willing to do what it takes. The contract states he can not be tardy no more than 4 times, and absent no more than 12 days in each semester. (They're taking his medicial issues with allergies and asthma into consideration). I'm so grateful. I meet with the superintendent and principal Wednesday at 9am to go over everything. Thanks for all the input and support from you moms.
