I have a parent who would like to meet with my principal and me regarding my lack of communication and allowance of opportunities for her son to earn his grade. However, her claims are utterly preposterous. Here is the scoop.....please give your opinion and advice. A homework activity was assigned on the 8th and was to be turned in on the 12th. The student was present in class when the assignment was given, however, he missed class on the 10th-12th due to illness. Upon return to school on the 15th the student was to submit the homework assignment per class policy (If you are absent the day the assignment is due, you must turn it in upon return to school). The student did not have the assignment on the 15th. Therefore, I gave him an additional opportunity to turn it in the next day. The next day rolls around and he did not turn it in. Mom emailed me and asks why he has a zero and I explained the aforementioned. She was not satisfied with my effort, or lack there of in her opinion, to allow him the opportunity to earn his grade. As far as communication, I keep all parent emails. I have many from said parent and they will all show prompt responses with detailed information and flexibility. I feel that this parent is trying to "strong arm" me into giving the child ANOTHER opportunity to do the assignment. I do not believe an additional opportunity is justified. What do you think? Would you allow the student ANOTHER opportunity?
