There is a way to waive a failed LEAP test. I'm going through this also! This is so unhealthy for our children and our leaders are blind to this. My daughter failed 4th and 8th grade LEAP tests. She passed the 4th grade summer LEAP but now has to attend 8th grade summer program and retake it once more. She was diagnosed with "severe anxiety"! She has a "B" GPA but is so worried when taking this "pass or fail" test, that she freaks out and can not pass them! I know my child is not the only one to SUFFER because of these tests. Something has to be done. passing or failing should NOT be determined by this test alone. I suggest you call a school board member that may be of help. If my daughter fails then she will be 18 in 11th grade and 19 all of her senior year. She has never been held back but with this age, if she wants to drop out in 11th grade, I can't stop her. The way we have it right now, we are going to have so many drop outs because of age. Call a board member and hope for a waiver. My school system suggested, MEDICATION!!, phychiatrist!!, or a private school! She's 14, the dance captain, very out going, are they "CRAZY" Good luck! I'm in your boat!
