As a Guardian ad Litem I’ve witnessed students in Foster Care being retained based on a shortage of credits and have watched students leaving detention centers lose credits. The sad part is that some students had actually earned the credits but they were lost in the shuffle of the student being placed in new homes, centers, and schools. I’ve reviewed Academic Histories which did not reflect all credits earned as supported by the students Transcripts or history which resulted in a shortage of credits and in some cases led to retention. Some children argue completion of courses but often go unheard because their case workers or caregivers don’t know what to look for or how to investigate the concern. High School Guidance, LLC can be that voice. Our Certified School Counselors are trained to look for academic discrepancies and assist case workers, parents, and stake holders to find lost credits. We provide Family Mediation and coach students towards academic success.
