Some kids function better in classes with fewer kids. There may be a school in the area that caters for this. This type of information should be available at schools, online and local boards of education.
Charter schools are public schools that have the mandate to operate independently as though they are an independent school. There is a period to this and it is usually for about three to five years. During this period, the school will enjoy freedom that other schools do not enjoy. The price for this freedom is that the school has to display good academic results throughout the year. If these results are not achieved and maintained, the board may not allow the charter to be renewed.
Some schools only attract certain types of students. These are referred to as magnet schools. These schools are generally reputable and seem to specialize in certain areas. The kids in these schools are amongst other kids that share the same interests. Some schools are entirely magnet. This means all the students participate in the magnet system. Other schools are referred to as PWS (programs within schools). This means only some of the kids in the school participate in the magnet program.
Most of the districts that have schools, offer some kind of magnet program. If one of these programs is required then ask the teacher or the principal if they can refer one to one of these programs. They will also be able to offer valuable opinion as to whether the child is suitable for such a program.
Should there be such a school or program nearby, and then visit with the principal at the school. Watching a class in action and inquiring about the success rate of the program will help in making a decision. There could be a waiting list and if so the child could be added to the list.
The principal should be able to give names of parents that have kids in such a program. Speak to parents who have children in the program and to parents who took the children out of the program. Find out why the parents keep the kids in such a program and why parents have removed the children from the program.
Vouchers are letters that have a monetary value attached to them. Parents have access to these in order to send their children to the school that best suits their children. The money for this is obtained from publicly funded programs. Ordinarily this money would go to normal public schools. Some states are not keen on this and place restrictions on the use of them. Other states give parents free reign to home school their children, or send them to magnet, private or religious schools. Education of one's child or children is not to be taken lightly and all options should be considered carefully.
