FEDERAL WAY, Wash. - Federal Way students who receive a grade of C minus or below have recently started getting phone calls at home.
The recorded message tells parents when their child is in danger of falling below standard in a class. The message advises parents to check their child's grades online or to contact their school.
District spokeswoman Diane Turner tells The News Tribune of Tacoma the goal is to notify parents so they can intervene more quickly.
At Federal Way High School, the principal, Lisa Griebel, reports the number of students passing their classes has increased since the calls started.
