I have a student that is struggling academically and behaviorally. I have been meeting with her parents since the beginning of the school year offering and stating my insights, concerns, and giving and sending home academic ideas. All I get is a bad response from them in many ways. I've been informed that these parents are tough to work with, but feel confused as to what to do and how to deal with them and their uninvolvement with their child who struggles academically. I work one on one daily with her, she recieves title one support, and paraprofessional support daily, and I send home activites for her to complete. Am I on the right track? How should I deal with her parents who feel I am not doing enough when they are not supporting me or her in school?
