Where I lived some of the kids were just bussed to BOCES for the trade, that was 1/2 of their school day.  Wow, 4:30 makes for a long day.

The Boyfriend was in an engineering immersion course his soph through sr years. The kids take two "regular" academic courses at the HS (usually their history, English, band/orchestra, sports) per semester and then the oh her half of their day is spect at our local Vo Tech, where they would take all their sciences and maths, which were taught with an engineering focus and engineerung application.   it's a great program. He's going to major in Aerospace Engineering.

Why is that you think LD kids should be slotted for a certain type of schooling?  How is that you still can't grasp after all of these years that kids learn differently?   If you can't provide structure, what are you doing in a classroom to begin with?  I don't undertand why you would sub in a school where you have such a low opinion of working woman and the kids you are working with.

<p>Interesting how different districts operate..

I know your have lots of experience with many different districts over the years but are you claiming that all of the others in your experience didn't have that collaboration?  I think it's fairly common, but that is me experience,.

As for your ps and your lies about Bord and LD, they are lies and everyone knows it, including you. I hope you find peace at some point in your life so you can stop the lies and attacks on others to compensate.

I know how this works and my nephew is actually at a mechanics school right now and did the same thing on hIgh school. </p>

Oh my, you really don't understand much of anything, do you?

Do you expect to act in the "mature" way that you do by ignoring the questions/comments and instead attempting to attack them by asking about happy pills and drinking?  Oh wait...I forgot, hyprocisy is your favorite.

Not really, you know since that often includes a break between the two.  With after school activities my kids aren't usually done until 5.30-6 and sometimes later.  

It sounds like your kids don't do anything after school, is that correct?

I have a number of friends who have kids in high school who were also doing something similar, I think its great that schools are really working with students to further their interests and academics.

I believe Bord's answer can be summed up by the same answer I used, "Do what I want."

Which is, obviously,  yours and Jamalama-dingbat's answer, too.   Since you keep coming here and engaging us when nothing forces you to do it.
