I am a parent volunteer at my daughters school, and I have held my kid back once in first grade, she was the youngest in her class and 4 days from the cut off date. She had been in kindergarden classes all year and 1st grade classes. Now she is in 4th grade and is in an after school program for subtraction which she should already know struggles everyday with homework and I dedicate all my time to helping her and so does her afterschool program. Looking at how she struggles every year I have asked to meet with the principle and her teacher. Her grades from the start of school year and now the end of year have not changed. Her teacher had a red folder in action about her struggle with her studies which I am not quite sure what that is. I want to hold her back again because I don't feel she is ready for 5th grade. I don't want her to continue to struggle and scrape by every yr with low self esteem and her confidence dropping about herself. I feel it will get worse. What should I do? I don't think the priciple will let me hold her back again.
