Some time ago, I started looking into high school credit for courses taken in middle school. I asked around about it and eventually discovered a state law that requires Districts to award it. At the end of the last school year, in accordance with the state law, I requested high school credit for the Integrated I class my daughter took at Washington.
That's when the fun began. My request bounced around a couple times. I sent it to the student learning committee, who sent it to the Chief Academic Officer, who sent it to the Director of High Schools. Finally, I complained about the run-around and said that if we could not work on this cooperatively and collaboratively, then I would have to move forward unilaterally, and it would become confrontational. On August 7 I got an email from Ms Santorno saying that she would take care of it by the end of September.
Well, September has ended but I haven't heard from her. Not a peep. So I have written to her and made myself very clear. I think we could clear the whole thing up in 15 minutes if we could just get all of the right people into a room together to work it out. I told her that I will contact a lawyer on Monday to schedule an appointment and that she has until the time of that appointment to invite me to that brief meeting where high school credit for classes taken in middle school will be resolved. If I don't hear from her before I meet with the lawyer, then she can tell her story in Superior Court.
