Some of the other threads got me thinking... How often to do contact parents? What do you contact them about? What warrants a note/email/phone call? Someone mentioned that their son went 7 months of virtually no hw, and I completely agree with the whole Boot Camp year (loved it) I honestly thought why did the teacher wait so long to tell you? I think students, especially my grade level, should be responsible by now, but when do you step in?
