Other side here, as well. He never got that kind of stuff because he didn't think he was entitled to it. Eventually he just became pretty indifferent to her schooling, which bugs me. SD is homeschooled now and he rarely asks her mom about it.
When we were on the other side, we got a copy of Will's report card once when he was in 1st grade. We found out that he missed 15 days in one quarter (3 out of 9 weeks!) and Neely raised a big stink about it. She never shared them again.
When they first moved here, she asked for them once and we gave her a copy. She hasn't asked again, but we would give her a copy if she did.
Yeah Dh doesn't ask. I know he could legally get them from the school if he wanted to. But fortunately, his girls are pretty good in school & his ex may have her issues but she's good at making sure they're in school.
I'm actually on both sides of this. My older girls live with their BM. I always get a copy of their report card and we switch off on awards and certificates that they get. We also switch off for who pays for school pictures so we always share. I usually only take one copy bc I have a picture printer at home and can make copies for the rest of my family. Then, for my younger 2, I've offered their BM copies of the report cards but she always "forgets" to take them with her, so I stopped trying. And as for pictures, I'll give her one of each child but since she don't chip in for them I'm not giving her any more than that.
If the kids get there RC during the week we have them we will look over them and then leave it at that and have there mom sign it off. But we don't get copies. We haven't received school photo's from either kids though in the last 2-3 years.
