A: It would be best if an education law attorney advised here, but you await a response for two weeks. Until you're able to discuss this with an education law attorney, keep in mind that in general, the decision could be up to the school. Also, it could be difficult for any attorney to advise here because things could depend on the school system, district, and their rules. One option is to discuss with the school system - their answer might be most specific and reliable. It's no one's business, but if you're able to, please consider summer classes if that's what it would take to move on to the next grade. Try to keep your education on track if you can. Good luck
