OSS14 has always been one to struggle academically a lot of it has to do w/his ADHD and some of it has to do with he just doesn't apply himself.
Anyway he told us (DH BM and myself) that he did not have exams last week. He was exempt from exams bc he past his end of year test (here they're called sols) so BM did not make him go to school last tues b/c she thought he had no exams but what she didn't kno was he did not have a sol in English therefore; he was not exempt from that exam and he missed it causing him to get a 0.
Well his English teacher called DH Friday and explained this to him. His teacher even let him come to school yesterday to make it up.
My problem is OSS who is 14 will not take responsibility for anything and has tons of excuses. His excuse for this one is "oh I forgot". Really? I have a hard time believing that one b/c he's been known to tell some whoppers.
I really hope this doesn't seem like a SS bash post b/c it's not. I love this kid, he has a lot of potential I'm just really frustrated and disappointed in him right now.
