My daughter report card for her first grade came unsigned - not by her teacher, nor by principal. I wrote an e-mail to the teacher and director asking to confirm that these are the grades, but they simply ignored my e-mail so far.
My brother told me that I am crazy signophill ;-), that since she goes to the second grade at the same school this should be just fine and I should leave it alone.
I, though feel uncomfortable that the report is not signed, my friend told me to bring eye witness when the signature done, since once their teacher indicated that she did not signed anything like that.
So far, end of the year and I feel literally crazy. My reaction comes from several reasons, at the beginning of the year my daughter was graded extremely low for no apparent reason to me and the report came unsigned (that time the teacher simply refused to sign it, as well as principal, stating that they do not sign beginning of the year report). Then the report came and my daughter was graded proficient even in the areas i would say she needed more work, signed only by principal. Now it came completely unsigned again. I do agree with this report right now. I disagree with their assignment of reading level, but anyhow...The absence of signature is driving me nuts...
But I guess I am going to simply ask the teacher to sign, the director to sign and that's it. What do you think?

Ours come printed by the school computer. If it does have a signature, it's a rubber stamped one. I have 3 kids, one is in HS which has 1500 kids and the other two are in elementary school which has about 500 kids. Both schools do it much the same way. When a kid tests proficient, it means that's the results per state mandated testing. I do think you are overreacting. Contact the school and set up a meeting if you don't agree with their assessment. You can always arrange for a tutor over the summer to bring her up to speed.
I think you are hung up on the signature and aren't seeing the whole picture.
