Conferences are held one or two times a year. The fall conference is a parent and teacher conference for all students. Parents and teachers discuss assessments, next steps, set specific goals and discuss questions or concerns. The spring conference is optional for students performing at or above grade level. The classroom teacher will reach out to parents/guardians of students that will require a second conference in the Spring. The student presents the student’s learning goals and portfolio to parents. This is an opportunity for students to practice their presentation skills.
