Parent/Teacher Conferences

Parent/Teacher Conferences are a time to learn more about your child's performance during the academic year.  You may schedule a time to meet with your child's teacher. Communication between you and your child's teacher is the key to your child's success.  Here are some suggestions to help you prepare for a successful conference.



  • Ask your child what they like best about the class; what they like least.
  • Ask them in what areas they feel most successful and what areas are causing them problems.
  • Ask your child what they would like you to discuss with their teacher.
  • Let your child know that after the conference you will talk with them about what the teacher had to say


  • Is my child reading on grade level?  If not, why?
  • How much reading should my child be doing at home?
  • Is my child able to do the math that you expect for a student in this grade? If not, why?
  • Is my child completing the homework that he is assigned?
  • Does my child get along well with his classmates?
  • Is my child respectful in class?


  • Changes in home life such as parents getting divorced, change of address, family illness, new sibling
  • Any medical or health needs such as allergies, asthma or seizures
  • Problems or concerns your child has talked with you about


  • Be on time - you want to have plenty of time to discuss your child.
  • Be open-minded.  Your child's teacher wants him/her to succeed just like you.
  • Don't be afraid to admit if you don't understand something.  Ask for more information.
  • Make sure your contact information is up-to-date in case the teacher needs to reach you.
  • Ask the teacher how they would prefer to be contacted - by telephone, email, etc.
  • Ask the teacher what resources you can have at home that would help with your child's education.


  • Tell your child the positive things his teacher said about him/her.
  • Let your child know if the teacher as any concerns.
  • Discuss any activities the teacher suggested your child do at home.
  • Contact your school's parent liaison to discuss resources that can be checked out of the school resource center.
  • Set up a plan of action to compete these activities.
