Situation/Case Study:
STUDENT ACADEMIC PROBLEM

Description:
A student who is not doing well academically is in my advisory group. He is not getting to school in time. He lies to his mom that he is at school. Mom gets him up for school. Sometimes she goes back to sleep and when she wakes up he is still there. The student has an attitude that rules don't apply to him. He doesn't care and doesn't need school. He is a behavioral problem in class. His parents are divorced and the father has a court order not to come to school. Mom feels she is the only one trying to help. She wants a school meeting.
