Mark Your Calendars! Remote Learning Conferences

Remote Learning Conferences are Feb. 24-25. These conferences will be held via Teams much like they were in the fall. This conference will be with a single teacher. Once you have signed up through the invitation you receive, you can reach out to a specific teacher should you have concerns you want to discuss with a certain content area teacher.

Please be on the lookout for sign-ups links that will be emailed on Feb. 11.

*Families will be receiving this same information in a mailing. It will include a "How to Register" flyer and an AIF form. The AIF form shares the recommended course subjects for the student. (Honors vs. Regular, level of Math class etc) If you have any questions about the recommendations, please have a conversation with your student's teacher in that subject area. The district formulated the AIF recommendation. Teacher input was not part of that process.
