Re: school documents
Perhaps no one has responded because no one has knowledge of the Canadian system. My kids have assignment books, but it's up to my kids to write down their assignments, and I don't have to sign them. It's up to them to manage their work. If a teacher wanted me to know something, he or she would either call or e-mail me directly, or send a note home with my daughter.
I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
