Thanks everyone.I only have a minute so sorry if I don't respond to everyone yet.I did fill out the RI religious exemption certificate,but they are still insisting it is not enough.
I also spoke to Alan Philips yesterday.He could write a letter for me,stating the federal laws and such,but I don't know what good it would do plus I don't have the money.He's willing to cut his fees in half for me,but even that is way too expensive.I'm still waiting for a call back from the attorney with the RI dept of ed,he agrees with me so we'll see how that goes.He's supposed to be talking to the city attorney about this for me.We're trying to keep it from going to a hearing before the dept of ed,but I think it'll go that far.
No chance of me moving.I just cannot afford it in any way.
Plus I really don't want to let this go.I want them to know I won't back down.I didn't back down on my ds's education(he has autism with an IEP),even calling in mediation to one of the IEP meetings.So the Woonsocket dept of ed really does not like me
.I don't want any other parents to go through this.
