I had a similar situation in high school. I got drunk at lunch and the school tried to send to the alternative "bad kids" school. I was in all honors classes and had a 5.0. That school would of ruined my future. I had never been in trouble before. My mom met with the superintendent and they agreed to let me attend another school in the district on a behavior contract that I wouldnt get into any more trouble. Your second option is to put her in another district.

Sounds like there isn't a whole lot more to do. Personally, I think that was a total overreaction on the part of the school for an otherwise great student.

Talk to the principle and super intendant of the district and see if they will make an exception because its her first offense.

This was kinda what happened to my brother. He took pain Meds from a girl who got them from her mom with cancer. He did his suspension and agreed to get drug tested at the dr office when ever my parents wanted ( the doc gave him a good scare too telling him everything bd that could have happened.) he's gone on to be really successful. He worked for NASA before he was 22. Sometimes good kids make a mistake. Idk your sister but maybe it's just a onetime thing and everything will work out for her also. Did you try just asking her why she did it.... May be she's going through something and needs to talk.

I think so too. I mean, this is exactly what's going on...they offered us I guess you would say a plea bargain, we could go ahead and agree to the 9 days suspension and finish the year in alternative school OR we can attend a tribunal(sp?) with the board of education in a few weeks and the principal told me in similar situations they would vote to expel the student from all school for the remainder of the year then they would have to attend an alternative school for the entire following year. He told me since she would be in high school next year that it would really put her behind on some vocational credits that she would need to graduate if she were to attend alternative school for just that first year. He said there would be a slim chance that they would just suspend her for 9 days then let her come back as a regular student, but he said 9 times out of 10 when it's an issue with drugs on campus, it doesn't go over that easy.

Yes, I've tried talking to her and really all she wants to do is cry and apologize. So, I figured I would give it a day or two to settle in for her then try to get her to explain it all to me.

That sounds like a smart idea. She sounds like she feels ba about it.

I would have her write a letter to the principal and the superintendent/school board. About how sorry she is that she knew it was wrong, why she did it , that she wont do it again, and how being made to switch schools would affect her for the rest of her life.

I woul talk to the school about a second chance if she has never been in serious trouble before. My sister had a similar situation with her daughter except my niece. The suspended her for a week. Kids experiment. It has nothing to do with how you are raising her.

Wow thats so harsh!! I would try to work something out with the principle. That's a definite over reaction
