South Colonie Parent Teachers Conferences

 

Preparing For Parent-Teacher Conferences

To get ready for a conference and to adhere to your time slot, ask your child if there are any concerns two days before the conference. And then:

  • Make a list of those concerns as well as any of your own

  • Read your child's concerns and ask about any you do not understand

  • If there are bullying issues, get full details

  • Do not blame anyone for anything until you have heard the full story

  • Stay positive, talk about the good points of the situation and let the teacher know you are willing to work together for the success of your child

  • Follow through with suggestions and talk to your child about a plan on improving specific areas

Initiating a Parent-Teacher Conference

Parent-teacher conferences are an important element in reporting pupil progress to parents. As a parent, you may initiate a conference by calling your child’s teacher and making an appointment with the teacher, counselor or principal. Every effort will be made to schedule your conference for a mutually convenient time.
