then got a letter that says do not contact court about this letter. but it says i have to re-enroll emediatly. i only have 3 group meetings left and 3 educational classes left. but they said i have to pay 135 dollars to get my schedule. do i continue where i left off? or do i have to start over again
You need to contact the class and talk to them. In most instances, individuals get terminated when they are late or miss too many times, or show up with alcohol in their system. It all depends. If it missed classes and you have a valid excuse or for failure to pay and you make arrangements to catch up on late payments, they may let you start where you left off. On the other hand, if it was for unexcused absences, showing up with alcohol in your system, you may have to start over. Best is to work with them to finish the class before a violation notice gets sent to the court or DMV.
They should not make you start over again but you need to discuss this with the program director.
