Tips for Parent Teacher Conferences

We understand that parents are the best resource for a child to make the grade. When parents and teachers work together students have a successful school year! 
 
Tips for parents on Parent Teacher Conferences 
 

Tip #1   Get Ready. Do your homework prior to parent-teacher conferences. Prepare by writing notes to yourself concerning:

  •     Any questions about the school’s programs or policies.
  •     Things you can share with the teacher about your child and his/her life at home.
  •     Questions about your child’s progress.
  • Tip #2  Ask Important Questions

    Don’t be afraid to engage in a frank conversation with your child’s teacher. Your goal is to develop an action plan for your child’s success at school. Good questions to ask the teacher include:

    •     What are my child’s strengths and weaknesses? 
    •     How does my child get along with classmates?
    •     Is my child working up to her ability? Where could he/she use improvement?
    •     What can we do at home to support what you are doing in the classroom?
    • Tip #3  Initiate the Action Plan

      Start immediately on the action plan you and the teacher put together. Discuss the plan with your child and track his/her progress. Stay in touch with your child’s teacher throughout the year with regularly scheduled “report card” conferences that can keep the communication lines open.
