How diligent are you at contacting home when a student has an F? Are you able to jump on it right away? Do you have set time intervals in the semester where you make a point to contact home for any kids with an F or even a low D? Do you even do it with every kid with an F since parents can access their kids’ grades online now? I am thinking about making a rule for myself next year to contact every F parent at the quarter mark and then with six weeks left in the semester when time is getting more dire. With that, I feel like I can say I have done my part and then put it on the kid and parent to monitor the grade and get their act together.
