My Grade 3 dd is having some challenges in math. We have met with the teacher once, and had two phone conversations. This week we are going to meet with her again and speak to the Vice Principal.

I would like to ask that a performance improvement plan be drawn up for my daughter that outlines what the learning objectives are for my daughter (e.g. she needs to understand place value of numbers), what resources will be provided at school (we are working on her learning at home), and time frames.

Is this a reasonable expectation for a parent to have?

Thanks,
Sheri

Is it all/majority of the math concepts or just a couple?

Do you think she has a learning disability?

What type of resources are you specifically wanting?

What have you asked the teacher to do? Do you feel she isn't doing her job?

What math program are they using?

Does the school have a process for this, such as team meetings for brainstorming etc.?

What has the teacher suggested? Is she stumped?

How does she do when you are working with her at home on these concepts?

I think it is great that you are taking an active role and are looking or improvement. A few questions come to mind...

Has there been some baseline data gathered to show her current level of performance?

What kind of progress monitoring will be done to assess her progress as any changes are made to her instruction?

How will instruction change...
Will the length of instruction change, meaning will she be given more time to complete work?
Will the method of delivery change, meaning smaller group, restating directions, additional support with a math journal or other resource available to her?

Good luck with your meeting!

I'm going to assume that your performance improvement plan is what we call an individualized learning plan and is something we use for RTI.

It would depend on how far your student is behind or how she is struggling and what you want to be done at school.
