HS Decision - last day
On the last day to make a decision YSD14.5 made it at the last minute as promised.
She's enrolled at the HS near BM. Which I fully expected because 1) BM and 2) pressure from OSD, friends, etc. that live near BM and also the CRAPPY online learning our school district is instituting. As soon as I heard about it, I knew that was the final straw. They are going to a quarter rather than a semester system (fine) but alternating quarters with core classes. That means only every other quarter will they have math, science, core literature...and that means only ONE semester of those classes. YSD is extremely math/science focused so there goes that option.
This is a sought after school district, where many, many kids used to come for education outside of the district - small classes, focused learning, some alternative classes. Well, they put out a notice recently pretty much begging for people to enroll kids in the school - because they are at risk of losing a LOT of funding due to virtual learning. Well, if you do some insane schedule in which you 'expect' or 'hope' or 'encourage' parents to fill the gap you've created and there's other options out there - then you've done it to yourself. I have to say the school she's going to has a good plan. Heck, even my neices school, in AZ no less, has a great plan.
Right now this won't effect anything but for maybe the exchange day. She'll still be week on/week of between homes. However, if/when this ends, she'll be at BMs most of the time so DH and BM will have to figure out an alternative schedule. But DH is so, so burned out. And once YSD gets busier with things, she I think will slowly stop coming.
So I am going to push hard to get our 2nd bathroom update finished, re-do the hallway floors downstairs so we are ready to sell - if we can hahaha - and downsize in the next year or two. No way do I want this large home for just the two of us.
