Parent conferences are a valuable tool in the education of any child. During conferences, the teacher and parent or guardian have the opportunity to talk about important information that will help the student throughout their education. Active participation of parents is essential! Communication between home and school is one of the best ways to ensure that a child’s school experience is successful.

 

Conferences offer parents the opportunity to find out how their child is getting along with classmates, how they're progressing in school and what can be done at home to build on strengths and overcome challenges. Parents will have scheduled conferences with elementary teachers. At the middle school level the student-led, teacher-supported conference model is used. In high school, time with the teacher may be brief as report cards are picked up but parent participation is still an important way to show support. Individual conferences can always be scheduled.
