The one who responded said that while my dd is quiet and very respectful and she does participate in class - she doesn't ask for help when she doesn't understand. So we set up a tutoring schedule. I'm kind of wondering why the other teachers have not responded. Would you contact them again now that it's been a week and a weekend since first reaching out? Would you schedule a conference?
I've never had to punish for bad grades bc for the last 6 years she's always had straight A's with the occasional B. This is the first time ever she has received anything lower than a high B on a report card. It feels like untraveled waters and not sure how to handle.
We have talked and she doesn't seem to have an opinion on what is going on. She has declared that pre AP is 'too hard' and she just wants to be in regular classes. That to me is giving up and not an option since she's always tested higher than average and has always done well in school until now.
I did ground her from her phone and games until her grades come up. Maybe she was spending too much time on devices. What more should I do? Any suggestions?
