I was expelled in March of last year which was my sophomore year from all the schools in my district . I was expelled for selling and having a controlled substance on me during school , I've really been working hard and I need half a semester credits to catch up. I'm going to be a senior and I want my last year to be memorable , it really means a lot to me , what are my options , what can I do to go back , I've changed so much since then and they keep fighting me on going back ..
What are you doing now? Are you going to school anywhere? What about another high school in your district or another district all together?
It may not be an option to go back to the exact school you were expelled from. However, you should still have the right to be going to high school.
Here are some ideas...
1. Hire an attorney who focuses on educational matters. You can find a list on www.copaa.org.
2. Call the State Department of Education and speak to someone who can advise you on your rights.
3. Arrange for a meeting between you, you parents, your therapist or counselor (if you have one) and the Superintendent of your District, Bring documentation of the remarkable turn-around you have made.
Good luck, son. If it doesn't work out, consider this a lesson learned the hard way. Go to college and continue doing well.
