I have to appear in front of judge due to 16 year old missing too much school. I went to the 1st hearing with school board and told them it was my fault not sending notes excusing her abscences. Come to find out, the school rule is if you have a school board hearing any additional abscences require doctors note only. She missed a few more days after and even though I sent notes, they would not excuse her. Even if I as her mom sign her out early, it counts as unexcused without doctor note. She still maintains a B average but they don't seem to care about that. Now we have to go in front of a judge and we are both being charged. Her with truancy me with neglect!! Had first meeting with court rep and were told: She can not miss any more school the rest of her school career without a note from the juvinille court appointed doctor, I can be put in jail for up to 12 months with $2500 fine and she can be taken from me and put in foster care until she is 18?? And it goes on our permament record!! Are they crazy?? Has anyone else gone through this? What can expect at the hearing? No doubt after this is cleared up...homeschool !!
