Giving my brother guardianship of my teenage son.

My 16 year old, sophmore son is struggling in a big city schools, and has requested to go and live with my brother and sister-in-law in rural North Carolina. To register him in schools they need guardianship. How do I go about doing this so that I am the one responsible for his health/life insurance (mine is better than my brother's)? I sort of want to have joint custody where I'm responsible for his benefits and have visitation on school holidays. Can I do this were social services won't get involved and take him away from his parents? All involved feel this is in the best interest of my son.
