Parent-Teacher Conferences will be November 15-19. This is a great opportunity to provide the best support for your student. During conference week, families will meet with teachers, share hopes and dreams and discuss areas of concern one on one. If your child has an IEP, 504 or other intervention services, we recognize you may have additional questions. The district has provided resources to support this process for all families which we have shared below.
Additionally, the Family and Community Engagement Department will be hosting a Family Power Hour about Parent-Teacher Conferences for families to learn more and ask questions. This meeting will take place on Zoom, Thursday November 4 at 5:30pm. Details will be shared in our upcoming Falcon Connection, on social media, and the "Upcoming Events" section of our website.
If you have additional questions, please let us know and we will be happy to assist you.
