I realize that I am posting on a teachers site, I am doing this because I want honest teachers advice. I have two daughters grades 6th and 10th, and neither one has EVER been in trouble in fact no teacher has ever called home. However every year (and I do mean every) I end up meeting with the principal because I cannot get teachers to post grades. Grades are supposed to be posted twice a week, however they are posted more like twice a month if that. When I politely ask most teachers about it, they become defensive and say they have too many students. Is this normal? Am I expecting too much? School starts tomorrow and I don't want to have to beg teachers again just to see my kids grades. Last year I had two teachers that did not post in 3 months. So I went to area superintendent and he told me that I was right and he would take care of it, which he did. However my fear is with a new set of teachers I will have to go through this all over again. How should I handle this?

Middle school and high school teachers may have 120 things to grade an...See More

flacka If you have a student that is a borderline student or doesn't turn in work, then you need to keep up with what is going on. I agree that you need to step back and allow them some independence. Parents of the "good" kids often don't get as much feedback because their child is doing well and not causing any problems. That said, if you aren't overly c...See More

I haven't heard of this yet. My daughter is in college. She recently found a nursing paper writing service, used https://edubirdie.com/nursing-paper-writing-service for that. After that, she handed in the work and the next day she received a notification that she had received an assessment on her electronic diary. This system is very fast. I think ...See More
