Need some advise on how to proceed with an issue involving a school's decision on placement onto the cheer squad.
I need a bit of advice and hoping maybe to get a bit of help.
My daughter recently tried out for cheerleading at her middle school. Everyone thought she made the squad and expected that she did. She was that good. She got a letter stating that she hadn't and to try out next year, which she can not do because she will not be at that school after next year. After a serious amount of drama at our house, I contacted the coach/teacher in charge of the squad. Unfortunately, I never got a real answer as to why she didn't make it, which is ok I suppose. At first she was very responsive and super sweet about my daughter's feelings. Telling me that my daughter did wonderful and was so close but the talent pool was super deep this year. However, the next day in an email she attempted to blow me off and state there was nothing left to tell me. Would have left it be if not for rumors that have been coming our way and an issue my daughter had earlier in the year. Towards the beginning of the school year, A group of girls were bullying my daughter and I had to take it to the principle. The principle evidently thought it was fair to issue the same threat of punishment to each girl, including my daughter, the victim. We now suspect that incident kept her off the squad. What can we do? My child is an emotional wreck and I must admit so am I. It is super hard to watch your child be so upset, especially when she knows she was good...
Thank you for any advice or help
