Having been a school counselor in an alternative high school, I commend your daughter and you for taking this next step. Going back to school is a very difficult decision for many students who feel they have failed.
Your daughter needs to focus on her goal- whether it is entering the workforce, continuing in college with her education, or joining the military.
Speak to your local school district about dropout recovery programs. Schools are penalized when students dropout and do not complete high school, so you may find there are alternatives in your area that meet your daughter's needs. The SchoolFinder on Education.Com is an excellent tool to investigate schools in your area. Best wishes!
Check with your district/county school system for online/virtual school classes she can take that will qualify for high school credit. Also check with your school system about what they suggest for alternative or charter schools in your district/county school to serve your daughter.
If all that fails, Google your state Department of Education (DOE).
