I didn't even know F- was really a grade, until I checked on Miss KT online this morning. She has an F- in English...one of the two classes she needs to graduate in June. And a D- in Government...the other class. Her English teacher called this morning, and we discussed Miss KT's strengths and weaknesses. The teacher says Miss KT sounds like her darling daughter...and she's willing to work one on one with Miss KT to be sure she knows what she needs to know. Wow! I've been so lucky with this district, and these teachers that are willing to help my difficult child get through. After the teacher and I talked, I called my mother, who has been friendly this week, and reminded her of my policy of confiscating car keys when grades were below a C, and asked if she was willing to follow through on this. She said yes (?!?!?) so starting today, Miss KT can drive only to school and home again until her grades are back up.
