Put her on a whole foods diet (meat veggies fruit grain) stay away from processed foods for a while.
Those gluten free goodies are just that, goodies. They do not need to be eaten on a daily basis. You can also learn how to make them yourself.
To avoid cross contamination it is best to replace things that are scratched, that are wooden, that are plastic (colender), and to have a seperate toaster.
Have you checked if her toothpaste is gluten free? What about chapstick? Makeup?
Will she eat prunes or drink the juice? What about a digestive enzyme pill, those help.
Has she been strict? I'm not trying to imply anything but sometimes with children, especially those just starting out, it is very hard on them and sometimes they cheat.
What about the school? Do you have a 504 plan for her? If not, get one. It will help with the absences and whatnot. Since celiac falls under the ADA act (americans with disabilities act) they have to accomodate.

Some states are starting more on-line options for PUBLIC school as well as private school options. Connections Academy (make sure you are in the public school option) and K 12 are two cyber schools that I know of. Sometimes public school environments are not for every student with medical conditions, even if there are 504 plans in action.
Some other areas of cross=contamination...
cross contaminated baking ingredients (flour dust clouds can contaminate other ingredients)

Also, laxatives increase the transit time of food in your body, decreasing absoption. Clearing up that end of things will probably cause her to feel a lot better.
