Each conference is 20 minutes long. During the scheduled conference, if your child is in grade 6,7, or 8, you will meet with your child’s Math/Science teacher(s) for 10 minutes and then for 10 minutes with your child’s ELA/Social Studies teacher(s).
Teachers will guide you within your conference time frame. If your child is in grade 5, you will meet for the full 20 minutes with both teachers on your child’s team.
If you would like to meet with your child’s Foreign Language teacher (Ms. Anderson, Ms. Manca, Ms. Zhang, Mr. Ahern, Ms. Sanchez, Ms. Brito, or Ms. Pruitt) please note that they will NOT be present during the team conference with ELA, SS, Science, and Math teachers since they teach students on all teams, not one single team.
Conferences with Foreign Language teachers can be arranged by signing up using the same system as with team conferences. If you choose to sign up for a separate conference with your child’s Foreign Language Teacher, please make sure you reserve enough time in between to travel from one room to another. It should be no less than 30 minutes between the start of each conferences.
This is an opportunity for you to meet with your child’s teachers regarding your child’s progress in the class and/or concerns you may have about your child’s progress in the class.
