If you have specific questions or concerns about your teen's education, the first person to talk to is the classroom teacher. If you need extra help, you can call guidance, special education or student success. In addition, the vice-principal or principal are available to assist.
Resist the urge to "rescue" your teen
High school is an opportunity for your teen to build his or her advocacy skills and independence. If your teen comes to you with a concern about a mark or another issue, provide advice to your teen on how to deal with it—for example, encourage him or her to speak to the teacher directly. Resist the urge to jump in immediately and "rescue" your teen.
