Parent Conferences

Children do best in school when parents and teachers work together

Research shows that students learn more, have higher grades, and have better school attendance when parents are involved in their child’s education. That’s why attending parent-teacher conferences is so important: it’s a great way for parents to become involved and stay involved throughout the school year. Parent-Teacher conferences are a good way to meet your child’s teacher and learn about your child’s academic performance, as well as the teacher’s expectations. If you know what is expected in the classroom, you can address it. .

By attending conferences, you also send a positive message to your child that school is important. Keep in mind that you are an equal partner at the conference. If you have questions or observations, the conference is a good time to share them with the teacher. Don’t forget to share what you know about your child. Your information helps the teacher better understand and teach your child.

List Questions or Concerns for the Teacher

  • Does my child hand in homework on time and is it complete?
  • Is my child doing work at or above grade level?
  • How are grades determined?
  • Does my child work better in groups or alone?
  • How does my child get along with others? Adults? Children?
  • Is there any concern about learning or behavior problems that I should know about? If so, what has been tried to help my child?
  • What can I do at home and school to help my child build on strengths and improve weaknesses?
  • How can I keep in touch about my child’s progress?
  • What are some opportunities for me to become involved at school?
