Yeah, I'm looking for a little sympathy, though preferably some usable advice if anyone has insight. I'm teaching online. Purely online. An online school families have to go out of their ways to attend. Kindergarten is not required in our state... which leaves me wondering... why enroll kindergarten if you're not going to work? I have a student who has been behind, extremely behind, since he enrolled. He does a couple of lessons on average a week in a program that is more or less self-paced, but because semester timelines are a thing, a couple of lessons a week just won't cut it. His parents are supposed to be working with him and helping him learn. I just can't sit and help him for hours a day (I don't have the time, plus it's simply not the model of the school). Parents have all sorts of reasons they're behind: new jobs, new schedules, grandparents don't know how to log on, etc. Right now, administration is looking at declaring truancy (or as much as we can declare that with this being unrequired kindergarten). I know and agree I can't hold every family's hand, but it's looking like it's that or kick them out at this point. Right now the only way he'll finish the semester on time is if we double up all the lessons, and I don't know if he can handle that each day.
