Parent Teacher Conferences
Parent-teacher conferences are a great opportunity for parents and teachers to come together to discuss students' progress and goals. At Passages Academy, parent-teacher conferences are held twice a year, once in the fall and once in the spring.
Here are some things to keep in mind when attending parent-teacher conferences:
- Prepare for the conference. Before the conference, take some time to think about your child's progress in school. What are they doing well? What areas do they need to improve in? What are your goals for your child's education?
- Be respectful and open-minded. The conference is a time for you and the teacher to work together to support your child's learning. Be respectful of the teacher's professional opinion, and be open to their suggestions.
- Ask questions. Don't be afraid to ask questions about your child's progress or the teacher's methods. The more you know, the better equipped you will be to help your child succeed.
- Communicate with the teacher. After the conference, be sure to communicate with the teacher regularly.
Here are some additional details about parent-teacher conferences at Passages Academy:
- The conferences are typically held in two sessions: one in the evening, so that parents and guardians can attend after work, and one in the early afternoon for those that can't attend in the evening.
- Parents are typically given a 10 to 15 minute block of time to meet with their child's teacher.
- The conferences are typically held over the phone or via video chat.
- The conferences are confidential, so parents can feel comfortable sharing any concerns they may have.
If you have any questions please contact the school or your child's counselor.
