Ema: My son who has an IEP and is a senior is behind schedule to graduate. He failed a few classes, but has been trying hard to make them up after school. He is frustrated cause his goal is to graduate on time, but when he met with his counselor he was told he would not graduate cause he still was missing some credits. He was told by his counselor that he had no other options of trying to catch up expect to comeback the following year. My son who is 17 was very upset. I immediately emailed his counselor and ask for an IEP. After some research I had found that the school district does have continuation schools in the area, but the counselor said it was not an option for my son. I am confused cause from what I know of continuation school they are for students who lack credits to graduate. My son was hoping he would attend the school so he could make up the credits he needed in time for him to graduate this school year. Is the reason he can not attend this school is because he has an IEP?
