How do I ensure that if the school is refusing contact with the teachers without the involvement of the children's father and step mother, then shouldn't I be involved in all communication between them and the school? And if so how would I know that this is being enforced. I have tried to make contact with the superintendent of the school to discuss it with him. I appreciate the quick response and your time. I do have one more question regarding the step mother. What rights does she have over my children? For example, yesterday when I had a phone conference with the principal and my son's teacher to resolve this issue, she was there also. Shouldn't it have been their father who was involved with this matter?
