Educators come across many situations that warrant concern to be voiced especially if a student is involved. A letter of concern is usually the means through which this concern is made evident to the student. Typically, letters of concern are written to express an individual’s unease due to a particular situation that another individual may be in.
A letter of concern to a student may be written to determine the cause of behavior that he may be displaying; behavior that is unusual for him. It may also be written in a situation where a person in a position of authority may be concerned about something out of the ordinary that is taking place and may be affecting a student in a negative manner.
Whatever your reasons may be, writing a letter of concern can put many things in perspective if you are stumped about a situation. Here is an example of a letter of concern.

I am writing this letter to you to voice my concern over the recent, significant drop in your grades which came to my attention during a customary check that I made on all students who have acquired the Arthur Charles Scholarship. Since you were one of the first students who received this scholarship from our college, it alarmed me to find out that you may not be taking full advantage of this opportunity.
Full scholarships are difficult to attain but you achieved this milestone owing to your intelligence and infallible grades for the entirety of your college years. At this time, I am concerned that you may not be able to derive the benefit that you deserve from this opportunity for which you worked so hard for. I have come across some pieces of information (that I am in the process of verifying) which indicate that there is some personal trouble at home which may be the reason for your falling grades.
I would like to offer my support to you during this trying time. The school board has permitted me to propose extra classes to help you meet your education targets for this term. If you feel that this will help, please let me know and I will have them arranged. You can also meet with me to discuss which strategies you can employ to improve your academic performance.
I look forward to hearing from you.
