What happens if my child is not eligible?

Posted by: Lorri Heneveld

If your child has gone through testing and is not eligible, it may be that your child is correctly placed in the regular education classroom. You will have an idea of your child's strengths and relative weaknesses. In many schools there are after-school programs in which your child can participate. There are usually clubs that can also help your child to develop his or her interests.

If your child's scores are sufficiently high and if there is room in the program, your child may be invited to come to the Extended Learning class on a semester-by-semester basis. If this happens, you would have to sign a letter stating that your child has your permission to attend, and that you understand that the invitation does not mean formal placement, and that it is on a semester-by-semester basis.
