If the teacher is using the homework as a means to generate marks (bad idea but it happens) then it's quite possible that the child could be doing "badly" in school, which would actually be more of a meeting deadlines problem than an academic problem. You could preemptively talk to the teachers/school to try to arrange receiving homework/study materials ahead of time maybe. If the child is failing because dad won't study material for tests let's say, perhaps if the school knew the situation (dad has limited time) you could arrange to study ahead of his visits or do makeup assignments/tests to help improve grades.
I get your question, because it's no fun to watch the other parent not care about schoolwork. However, if dad only has this one week a month (we're still waiting to hear what your access agreement is) its highly unlikely that the child failing can all be attributed to his week.

First thing...homework=kids responsibility to get this done. If kid is telling dad no home work to do because kid does not want to do them then how is this dads fault? If kid is telling you that dad said no to doing home work, it might be Kid be playing parents.

The old mom said no, go ask dad kind of deal.

What information do you send to dad about homework?

Teachers give lots of time to study and for projects. I have 3 kids, grade, 3, 10, and 12. Homework was never the issue with not doing well in was kids motivation in class, from liking to teacher, the subject to understanding the subject.

FYI new school year new teacher....ask kid if they like their teacher!

Your solution is to cut kid off of dad and punish both...if kid is not wanting to do homework might be because kid wants to spend all time with dad because it is limited.
