GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOTV) - If you are newly divorced or going through the process, as the new school year approaches it is wise to start making a plan for co-parenting regarding your children's schooling. Have you thought about, or talked about whether you will both attend parent-teacher meetings, orientation, plays, sports and other events?
