What to do if my ex-husband’s new wife continuously signs legal documents for my children as their guardian/parent?

My ex-hubsand and I have joint custody with residency with him. I have never signed any agreements or guardianship papers for his wife to sign anything for my children, I am never notified of school conferences or medical needs of my children and everything is done through their stepmother.Is this legal? What can I do to make this stop?

You could go to court to get an order requiring your ex-husband and his wife to noticy you of all such events occurring in your children's lives, but this really should not be necessary.  I would start by contacting your children's schools and medical providers and making sure they know to contact you separately about anything significant happening in your children's lives.  Then I would ask your ex-husband for this courtesy as well.  If that doesn't work, you can go to court to get an order.
