Communication is terrible. They wait months before bringing any issues to attention. Teachers half the time dont read notes in the daily log book that I have to sign daily. Teacher has other students stamp it as signed and so any messages get ignored. Got a disciplinary slip home last year and the student on the slip wasnt even my kid. Wrote a message on the slip itself and never received any attempt at follow up like a phone call or message back.
