  Case: Teaching Faculty Students
I am currently a elementary school teacher at a small, close-nit school. I have an administrator's child in my class and he is having academic/behavior issues. The administrator frequently tries to confront me about the situation face-to-face. I am concerned because the other parent is not present and proper documentation needs to be made. Advice?
Solution: (Rates are posted for this solution!)
You could update the parent informally for little things but the bigger things that need to be documented should take place in a formal meeting with all parties present. If you feel uncomfortable you could always reach out to your supervisor to set up the meeting for you.

Comments: Yes, the teacher should act as if this was any other student. Follow the procedures in place. This isn't a casual conversation- in this situation you are dealing with a parent who is wanting to discuss things with you that need to be done in the proper way.

Comments: Agreed, the fact that the parent works at the school should mean nothing. Just like with every other parent o a student situations should be handled professtionaly

Comments: I agree this solution is correct. I would keep the other parent up to date with the happenings in the classroom but if it is a larger issue then a formal meeting needs to take place. Also the teacher should be keeping documentation of the incidents that occur.
