Will I be removed from ARD
I am currently in the ARD program and have been since October 7th. Part of the requirements to get through it was 25 hours of community service and have proof of that within 30 days of completion of the ARD program. I completed those hours but made a mistake and thought I was finished on April 7th instead of March 7th.
