Parent/Teacher Conference Link

Dacula Elementary School is pleased to be able to offer parents the opportunity to schedule teacher conferences online. This will allow parents to select times that are convenient, as well as coordinate multiple children’s conference times. The link is located on our school website.


You will need to select your child's class/teacher. Next, you will be asked to enter your email address, and then you will be sent an email with a link that will allow you to register for your conference time. Click the link and choose your time.


You must have a valid email address to use this system. If you do not have access to email, please contact your child's teacher to set up your conference.


You will get email reminders before the conference.


PLEASE register by Wednesday, February 17, 2016.


Thank you for your help!
