Definition of "Full Time" Student
I have a son that was kicked out of school last year and has been sporadically attending an "Alternative" High School. He turned 18 in March and I have continued with CS. Is he still considered a "Full Time" Student? My agreement states that when he is 18 and is attending full time education then I am to continue. I would just like to clarify before I approach X about ceasing CS. I had 2 others and it was a lot easier with their CS termination - the 3rd one is a charm :eek: TIA for all your input.

An alternative school is still school. If the kid attends classes all day every day, it's full time whether a traditional or alternative school.

There in lies the question. He does not go all day. He goes from 9 to noon. There is no organized class or teacher. The kids/adults just given books and lessons to complete

Its not worth the fight. He goes to school. Wait until hes done this year and then fight it.

Agree with Beachnana.

I have recently discovered that the alternative school requires full time students to attend 210 minutes per day.

blinkandimgone 05-27-2015 12:40 AM you want to shaft your kid out of CS for a difference of 40 minutes?

Your kid is in school. That's a good thing.

Yes I agree. He is in school. Wait until he is done

Thanks for the judgement Blinkandiamgone - I was asking for a definition. I wish he was in school - he barely makes it for 210 mins a week.
