Getting The Run-Around From School
My daughter has been bullied for the past 2 years at school. This year I decided to meet the principal to see what could be done without it getting worse for my daughter. The principal was not very helpful with ways of handling it. In February it was getting worse and my daughter was beginning to miss days of school. She never misses school. She was finding it harder and harder to face this bully and the friends that were supporting her.
Went back to school in February and dealt with vice principal. He said that he would meet with bully and tell her to leave my daughter alone or else she could be suspended and lose a trip to Europe. things went better for 3 weeks and then they had march break. when march break was over the Bully forgot warning and it all began again.
My daughter was starting to want to stay home more and more. Confidence and self esteem gone she felt like she had no more friends and no more future. She is graduating this year and my fear as a parent was that she would not graduate and go into a depression.
She was attacked by bully on March 26 and we pressed charges with the police. The bully only got a 5 day suspension and got to keep her trip to Europe. The school did not follow through with the consequences. My daughter went back to school for 2 days but could not concentrate because she was made out to be the bad one for pressing charges.
The school requested a medical paper before they could provide tutoring at home. Medical paper was sent to school on April 8 and she has not had tutoring or homework sent home as I requested. we are now april 17 and I will be going to school today to pick up homework with a friend so that I will have a witness with me. A french tutor is supposed to be coming tomorrow April 18 and math tutor next Tuesday, April 23.
I feel that the school is giving me the run-around and that the bully is getting approval for what she has done. I feel that my daughter's education is being neglected by the school. I have also spoke to the director general at the school board and he is no help at all. He was supposed to call me back on April 15 and I have not heard back from him. I have also called back on April 9 and left him a message about my daughter's tutoring and no call back. My daughter and I are living a nightmare…
