Lynn: I recently started homeschooling my daughter mid year. She is in 6th grade with Down syndrome and does not want to go to middle school yet. She was in a special education class at a school away from our homeschool. She was about to transition to middle school. She has a brother in 4th grade that looks out for her but they were unable to attend the same school. I want to be able to retain her for two years and have both of them start middle school together. I want to homeschool her and get permission for her to attend specials in our neighborhood school. Now that I am homeschooling her, who do I go through to have her retained?
