Parent Teacher Conference focuses on learning, although your child's behavioral and social development also might be discussed. You will probably hear feedback about your child's progress and areas of need. Other topics of discussion might include standardized test results, individualized education plans (IEP), and 504 education plans.
Some parents may have been tracking their child's schoolwork and progress all along, by access their child's Power School/Parent Portal account. Therefore you would already know what issues are most important to discuss with the teacher during your conference time. Continue to monitor your child's progress through the parent portal-power school.
Parent Portal, Power School:
Grades PreK-2nd monitoring attendance
Grades 3rd-12th monitor grades, assignments, test scores, attendance and more.
If conflict arises with your schedule, try to find a mutually convenient time to meet for your conference. Contact your child's teacher or other school staff via phone or email. Don't wait for the conference to address any serious issues.
