Tips for Parent/Guardian-Teacher Conference

Before the Parent/Guardian- Teacher conference

·         Make a list of what you want to ask the teacher

·         The following are some questions for you to consider asking the teacher

o   What does my child do well?

o   What skills does she or he still need to develop?

o   Is my child getting extra help? If yes, in what subjects?

o   How does my child get along with the other students?

o   How can I help my child at home?

o   What is the best way to contact you if I have more questions?

During the Parent/Guardian-Teacher conference

The teacher will review your child’s progress.

·         Request to see samples of your child’s work that reflect the progress that the teacher describes

·         Share information that will help the teacher understand your child better

·         Ask the questions you have prepared

·         Take notes so that you can share the teacher’s comments with your child

After the Parent/Guardian-Teacher conference

·         Share with your child the positive things the teacher said

·         Talk with your child about how you and the teacher are going to help with the things that need to be improved
