I agree that you definitely need a meeting with his case manager. I would also caution you however that high school is preparing him for college, locational training, and/or a job. He will have a little to no support in those situations. Well supports are necessary and appropriate, he should also be learning self management strategies that he can use when he leaves high school to keep himself on track. So, he might have the case manager checking in to ensure that assignments are completed, but I would pair that with learning to use a planner (paper or an app on his phone - his choice) to track assignment completion on his own. The supports should be gradually faded as he develops coping skills. High school is only four years. It will fly by in many respects. I strongly encourage parents in junior high and early high school to place a strong emphasis on learning self-management skills because the kids are going to need them before you know it.
