Their permanent records must be a lot more comprehensive than mine, I got a copy of mine a few years ago and all it contained was my grades, attendance and ACT/SAT scores (And believe me I got in trouble more than a couple times...)
“Their permanent records must be a lot more comprehensive than mine”.
Oh, they are. There are two school records, by the way. The main one and the “secret” one. Seriously. One is for the viewing if requested by parents and there is always a second one that includes lists of infractions etc... My one girlfriend requested both when her daughter got into trouble. They were ticked that she knew about the other one (she has a friend in the school system).
On another note, there is now a Montgomery County “grading system” for behaviors. When a child misbehaves, it is referred to as “Anarchy” and they are given a punishment/calmed down to level D (Demure). How would I know this? Well, lil’ Miss 6 year old got into trouble for pushing a girl when the girl called her “stupid, dumb” and refused to let her into the computer lab. The girl was not injured, didn’t fall.. the “bad” behavior = the pushing. I get a call from her teacher that said she was at the “Anarchy level” but is now “Demure”. Anarchy? I asked, “Is she throwing molotov cocktails? Is she overturning cars in the lot? Is the school currently on fire”. The teacher said, “I don’t make up the grading system... I know it is out there”. Crazy, ain’t it?!
