My 2 older children have attended floyd before, however at the begining of this school year we were out of State and when we returned I enrolled the children as "Transfer" students. JD Floyd has still not obtained thier grades from marking period one and have not taken into consideration that thier prior school required them to be in a "Basic Skills" Reading program.
