A bit annoyed at teacher, AGAIN. So Liam has been complaining of belly aches on and off last week. There has been a stomach bug thing and think he was actually sick on Friday, but then the other night he started again. He is an anxious kid so last night I probed a bit. With everything that had been going on before break worried he is still not speaking up. First I got a no then I got a well am worried about my grades which he elaborated worried about being left back. Guess teacher felt the need to tell the class she needs to let principal know at end of quarter who she feels needs to stay back and there are a few on her list.
Really?!?!? Or is it just me. Why on earth say something??? Its school policy following close of second quarter grades teachers must notify admins and parents of students AT RISK for retention. A meeting is held, interventions are discussed etc., and no decision is made until after 3rd quarter. It’s in the handbook as a parent I read it I understand it, he is 8 yes he needs to take school seriously but to the point you are worrying him. Last quarter she said x# of kids had As x# had Bs and so on and some failed. My kids grade at this point whether you say speficially of speak in general terms is NO ONE business but hers, mine, his and the admins at the school and any other staff that work with him not the entire class. If someone else kid is failing it’s not MY business or my kids. He fretted over was he one of them and now she has him worried he will repeat. Not that it doesn’t worry me, he definitely isn’t an A student but his IEP adds a different level, although I still feel she is not completely following this is all stuff we would address in a meeting and nothing is final in January what happens in June, just kind of annoyed she would even address the class as a whole on this.
