Parent-Teacher Conference Toolkit
Students do better in school when their families are engaged—and parent-teacher conferences are one way to involve parents in students' education. By talking with families, teachers can gauge student progress, reinforce expectations and support students who may be facing challenges.
But parents can help teachers, too. By talking with parents about students’ interests, the way they learn best or any personal concerns, teachers can learn ways to engage students better in the classroom, make connections to the real world, manage behavior and work with students' strengths.
All schools are encouraged to hold quarterly conferences the week after progress reports are released. Two of these conference windows (usually fall and spring) include evening appointments to accommodate parents’ busy schedules.Please watch the video below for tips on how to prepare for parent-teacher conferences.
