When I register my child for the 2008 season, what grade is he considered to be in?
The grade your child will be entering in Fall 2008 is the division he will be placed in. Ex: Your child is currently in 4th grade. In the Fall, he will be entering the 5th grade, so the 5th grade is the grade he will be placed in. My child is home schooled. Where will he be placed since he will not have a report card?
We will then place your child in the grade he would be in if attending a public school. My child was held back 1 year, will this effect his placement?
No, we will still use the grade he will be entering in the Fall 2008. My child was held back twice, will this effect his placement?
Yes, we must place this child with his original division. I donít have a copy of my childís report card. What should I do?
