    Yep possibly..my gp is pretty good with stuff like that...here's hoping it doesn't come to that!

    If it were me I would pass it on personally - its much easier to deny a request when the person isnt right in front of you.

    You could write the letter first and follow it up with an interview if need be.
    I've spent the last year dealing with an unreasonable principal and from that experience I just think it's better to have proof of everything which can obviously be achieved in writing.

    Is a shame the previous year three issues were not documented or taken seriously. If there was a paper trail that would certainly help your situation. I would ask if they have records about that.
    Then meet in person to discuss the situation. Go through the letter and leave them with the letter. Paper trail all the way!

    yeah I would do it in person

    also - bring her reports showing the difference in her grades in the year she had that teacher and those issues.

    Show that it isnt just your DD being a bit precious
