Please don't take any offense, but this is bad advice.
In my experience, no one is "forced" to drop out of school when they move to a new area. There may be something I'm missing or information I don't have. Generally speaking, though, public schools are very obliging when it comes to accepting a new student regardless of the time of year. (I believe they are required by law
to provide an education). Grades can be transferred.
The only way you are going to find the answers to your questions is to contact the school in your new area. They'll look at your transcript, such as it is, and talk to you, then tell you what they can and can't do. They will be the ones to tell you what you will have to do.
It sounds to me that this year is a wash, but if you get back to school ASAP, and do what you have to do (summer school, extra course load, study, etc.) I should think you'd be able to graduate when you're supposed to. As long as you earn the needed credits, you should be all right. But, in all honesty, it sounds like it's going to take a lot of work on your part.
I can't imagine many circumstances in which I'd counsel someone to drop out of school. In this day and age, it is becoming increasingly difficult to get a good job without a college
degree of some kind. The value of a good education cannot be overstated. Go get it!
