Your child(ren) will be showcasing their schoolwork and discussing educational goals with you through Student-Led Conferences. During Parent-Teacher Conferences, students will lead the discussion with you about their schoolwork, while teachers will help direct conversation and answer questions you may have. We have several goals for holding conferences using this format:
For parents – we hope that you will get to see rather than simply being told about your child’s progress.
For students – we hope students will take more responsibility for their learning.
For teachers – we want teachers to have more meaningful and impactful conferences with you.
For all – we want to maximize our time together, create ways to collaborate with one another to support student success.
There may be times where a teacher will want to have a conversation with the parent (without the student present) or vice-versa, and that is okay. The student can just step out of the classroom so those conversations can take place if necessary. Our time during conferences is very limited, so please be on time and stay within the time limit. If more time is needed, an additional conference can take place at an agreed-upon time. In 4th-6th grades, conferences will primarily take place on Thursday, November 5. Friday, November 6 is reserved for parents that would like an additional conference with the classroom teacher or WebEx conferences. Please reach out to your child’s teacher to schedule the conference.
We are excited to share with you, and we welcome any questions you may have about this conference format.
