My boyfriend has sole custody of his daughter and he has been emailing the teacher (Catholic school) about grades, upcoming events, etc but she never replies. Rather, the child's grandmother (mother's mom) also works in the same school and seems to know everything that the father does not: grades on tests, disciplinary events, tuition info, upcoming event fees and registration paid/sent in advance. The mother is NOT involved in the situation and the father never gave consent for information about anything to be released to the grandmother. Not only is it distracting but interfering in his ability to be a father. Are there any laws that forbid a teacher/school from releasing this information to a relative when the father has NOT given consent? Thank you.
