Medlin at a Glance

September 15, 2014

From the desk of Mr. Drewery

Happy Monday everyone! As we begin our 4th week of school, remember the importance of proactive parent communication, especially with Progress Reports going out. Remember, page 15 of the Medlin Handbook states:

"Teachers are required to contact parents regarding any progress report grade below the passing standard of 75%.

If a students grade falls below the passing standard of 75% at any time after the progress reports are made available, the teacher is required to contact parents regarding the student's most recent progress in within 24 hours of the change in the grade."

This would also be a good time to begin initial communication with parents regarding student behavioral concerns in your class.

Keep up the phenomenal work and have a great week!

"The human mind is our fundamental resource."
