I was wondering if anyone could tell me if they knew what age my 15 yr old daughter has to be inorder to quit school, wheather it be on her own or by me signing her out. I know how bad that sounds but no one here knows the whole situtation behind this so please don't critize since you don't know the whole story. I just really need some info on this from anyone that knows. We live on the Eastern shore of MD. Thank you all very much

I know every state has different guidelines. Unfortunately, I am not from MD. No matter what the situation, I would urge you to contact her current H.S. counelor, or someone in the school district, and find out if there are alternative schooling options available for your daughter ~ many states now offer online "cyberschool" programs where the students don't have to go into a regular building, but can complete their education from home via a computer.
