Situation/Case Study:
PARENT/TEACHER ISSUE

Description:
A student received an A- as an end of quarter grade when she expected to receive an A. The A- resulted from two missing assignments, which were due during her absences from school. She apparently did both assignments but forgot to turn them in. This left her just missing an A. The student was very upset and her parent called the teacher to request a different resolution. The teacher felt much pressure to change the grade.
