Parent - Teacher Conference Ideas The purpose of parent-teacher conferences is for parents and teachers to share information about the progress your child is making in school. The goal of the conference is an exchange of information, thoughts, and ideas that will help the child become more successful in the classroom. The conference helps the parent and teacher form a partnership on behalf of the child and helps both parties understand the needs and expectations of the child, the parent, the teacher, and the specific course. Please consider the following suggestions for making parent-teacher conferences successful: Please remember time is limited. Other parents need to talk with the teacher, so please be brief. Be prepared. Write notes to bring to the conference. Include: Information about your child’s home life which may be important for the teacher to know; Questions about your child’s progress; How you can contribute to your child’s success in school; Your concerns about what is going on in the class. Write questions you may have in advance. Ask about coming assignments, projects, tests, and/or other pertinent information. Be friendly– if there is a problem, the best way to solve it is to work together. Contributing to a positive conference atmosphere leads to effective problem solving. Listen carefully and objectively—the teacher and the school’s goal is to help students succeed. The recommendations you receive are designed to help your child. Advocate for your child as necessary.

Information about how you can best communicate with the teacher. Parent-teacher conferences should be a positive experience. Even if your child is having difficulty, the conferences should include positive, productive discussion aimed at helping your child improve. When parents and teachers become partners working in the best interest of a child’s success, great things can be accomplished. Our goal, like yours, is the success of each student. The purpose of school is learning at high levels for all students. A successful parent-teacher conference is one-step in accomplishing that purpose.
