Next week's meeting is going to be a waste of time
So next Wednesday morning at 5:30 am our time is the meeting with SD's teacher, assistant principal, social worker, etc. plus BM and BM's DH. SD is currently at 21 total missed days of school and 5 tardies. SD's last report card showed minimal improvement and that was before SD missed 10 more days of school and 2 more tardies. SD's teacher had put SD on the list to be signed up for free after school tutoring in both Math and Literacy early March and copied us on the email for it. DH has asked BM twice if she signed SD up for the tutoring, the first time she said she would talk to the teacher and the second time she flat out ignored the question. So DH emailed SD's teacher to ask if SD had been signed up for the tutoring so he will know this information prior to the meeting Wednesday. SD's teacher responded saying that SD has not been signed up for the tutoring the school offers.
Basically at this point there is nothing that is going to convince DH that SD shouldn't repeat kindergarten. SD simply has missed too much school, her last report card doesn't meet standards on even half of the items assessed, and frankly doesn't seem like the extra help being offered to assist her in catching up is not been used. The school can't even test SD to see if there is a learning disability because SD doesn't come to school enough. Last meeting the board we met with said they don't think it is a learning disability, but rather the missing school and coming to school tired is what is holding her back from success. I am interested to hear however if SD is still coming to school so tired when BM said it was because of the tonsil issue, but the tonsils are now gone, so was she right about that or was it a convenient excuse.
