Some helpful tips to plan ahead to make conferences successful:
Before the conference:
- Ask your child how he/she feels about school so far.
- Ask your child if there is anything he or she would like you to discuss with the teacher (or for upper-grade teachers, inquire if your child is encouraged to attend).
- Make a list of topics or questions you would like to discuss with the teacher.
During the conference:
- The teacher and parents/guardians are a team! Develop action plans together and continue to build relationships to support your child.
After the conference:
- Talk about the conference with your child.
- Talk about the positive points and be direct about any concerns.
- Explain to your child any plans you and the teacher created.

Your Voice Matters, Take the LCAP Survey Today!
Why should I take the survey?
Temecula Valley Unified School District is committed to providing all students with a challenging, relevant education that sets them up for success. But, to do so, district leaders need to hear from all stakeholders about their experiences. That’s why you’re being asked to take the district’s Quality Counts Survey.
How will the results be used?
The district will use the results to better educate, support, and prepare students for the future.
Are my responses confidential? Yes.
This survey is being administered by independent research and communications firm K12 Insight. There are no right or wrong answers. No one at Temecula Valley USD or our school will be able to identify you or see your answers, so please answer honestly.
How long will the survey take? Five minutes or less.
