Can I drop out of high school at age 17 while on juvenile probation without having to get permission from my Probation Officer?

Do they have any control of whether or not I can do that?

If you are juvenile probation most likely the terms and condition of your probation are that you are to remain inscholl until you are an adult and have completed thye 12th grade. Based upon what you have written about, dropping out of school at this time would not be a wise idea for you.
