I sit here today reading an e-mail from an irate parent. This parent has every right to be irate. Her daughter has had a tough year. She's had personal issues that have kept her out of school and a death in the family. These are issues that the school are aware of. This poor girl's Biology teacher has refused to allow her to makeup work, even though I gave explicit directions to each of their teachers to allow makeup work without penalty even if past the deadline. When teachers don't follow simple instructions it makes me look like I can't do my job. This teacher and I will be meeting first thing tomorrow. Errrgh.
