A parent-teacher partnership is needed if your child is to have a happy and productive school experience. You as a parent can be helpful to the teacher, and you can seek advice from the teacher who works with your child daily. Everyone benefits from a good parent-teacher conference. Whenever possible, both parents or guardians should participate.

Before the Conference

Speak with your child about school and learn his/her thoughts and feelings. Write down your questions, which might include some of the following concerns:

The school's academic program:

  • Testing program
  • Grading, homework and discipline policies

Your child's:

  • Ability to do schoolwork
  • Current levels of achievement in reading, math, and other areas
  • Attitude towards school
  • Ability to get along with others
  • Grading, homework and discipline policies

During the Conference

  • Discuss your child's:
  • Achievements
  • Physical and emotional health
  • Likes and dislikes
  • Activities after school
  • Responsibilities at home

After the Conference

  • Jot down important points discussed
  • Share the results with the appropriate person(s) in your family
  • Discuss the conference with your child:
  • Stress positive points brought out by the teacher
  • Give compliments of the things done well
  • Discuss the teachers suggestions for improvement

Be sure to check back with the teacher on a mutually agreed upon date to discover how the child has progressed since the conference.
