Default Progress reports

2 of my elementary school age children received their progress reports 2 weeks ago. 2 separate email requests to their mother to have either a copy or the originals to copy have gone unanswered.

Is it legal for their mother to withhold this information from me?

Thanks!!

You can get copies from their schools, and set it up that both parents get a copy directly from the school in the future. Thats how we do it.

That's what I am going to have to do. Easier than trying to work with an apathetic mother with no interest in co-parenting.

You should also be on any school email lists. Usually following report cards are parent/teacher interviews. You dont want to miss those either.

To answer your other question, I'm not sure if the mother has an obligation to provide you with the school information. You have the right (assuming joint custody) to obtain it from the school. The school has the corresponding obligation, not the mother.


Unless your separation agreement says otherwise...

I am on all the mailing lists. And a Facebook group. I scheduled my own P/T interviews last time and will do the same this time.

I also have frequent conversation with the teachers as I am not seeing homework come to my home when my children reside with me.

Get them yourselves. Under both the Children’s Law Reform Act and the Divorce Act, 1985, the legal right of a non-custodial parent to have access to a child includes the right to make inquiries and to be given information concerning the child’s health, education, and welfare.

In the absence of a Court Order or separation agreement that explicitly states you are not allowed access, each parent/guardian will have equal access to their child’s records.

Just get the stuff yourself. There is nothing "legal" about this. A good parent would just go get the information and not create unnecessary conflict.

I resent your implication of not being a good parent. I came here looking for advice and support as this is all very new to me.

Perhaps your holier than though attitude would best be kept to yourself.

Oh jesus settle down. No one is saying you’re a bad parent. Stop asking the ex for stuff. Get it directly from the school. There’s no sense in poking the bear on ridiculous stuff like information you can get from an outside source.
