Monette:  Is it legal for a school to FORCE a non-diploma tract on a child/parent? My son transferred to public school last year. He is behind in his learning, but is capable. The school says he is not, but I watch him do 5th grade homework with minimal help.

I think doing both things is appropriate in this situation. It appears that the school is using this wording to avoid having to give you a prior written notice form. You can request this form. This website has great info on prior written notice. I suggest sending your requests to the campus & sp ed office.

Monette, You say your son transferred to public school and that you have watched him do 5th grade homework. Does he have an IEP? Is he receiving special education services designed to help him catch up to his peers and meet your state’s academic standards?

Assuming he is in 5th grade, what reason did the school staff give for wanting to put him in a non-diploma track?

Assuming he has an IEP, the school can’t put him in a non-diploma track if you object. Please read this article about what parents can do if the school proposes an alternate certificate or non-diploma track – http://www.wrightslaw.com/info/diploma.cert.no.htm
