My kids are in gh school in Texas and I see in their grades

Customer Question

My kids are in high school in Texas and I see in their grades that they are allowed to:
Their teachers are actually going in and altering their grades. The teacher said he bumped up his grade.
If they have an incomplete for a period they do not get and incomplete for entire period. They get their last grade. They had an 90 and the next period they had and incomplete but they received a 90.
If they do poorly on a test they can retake the test to improve their score.
I contacted the principal about this and he says it all legal.

Hi and welcome to JA. I am Ray and will be the expert helping you today.

I would file a complaint here with TEA, Texas Education Agency and the school superintendent.This sounds fishy to me an dit needs to be reported and looked into.There may be some problems with all of this and it should be investigated.

You can file the TEA one online.

You may also want to write letter to superintendent expressing your concerns and stating you filed a complaint with TEA.These things should be investigated and this is how to get it started.
