Wednesday, April 10, 2019 is “Conference Day” for all Chicago Public Elementary Schools. There is no school for students on this day, however, we encourage parents to bring their child(ren) to the Conferences.
Report cards will be distributed in two conference sessions. The first session will last from 11:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. and the second session is from 4:00 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. *Please do not come to school from 3:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m. Teachers will not be available during that time. The information and sign-up sheet will be coming home with your child soon, or it can be found by clicking here.
Parents who are unable to attend either of these two sessions on this day are asked to schedule a separate conference with their child’s teacher.
All students will participate in student-led conferences. As we refine our approach to student-led conferences, we are asking teachers to prepare students to share specific areas of strength and opportunities for growth. In addition, on conference form, parents have the opportunity to share something that they would like their child or teacher to be prepared to address with you during the conference.
In order for this day to run smoothly, you will have the following responsibilities:
While conferences are student led, teachers are also available to meet with parents to discuss individual questions that they may have and to discuss student performance data as needed. If a longer, more private conference is required, please schedule that time with the teacher.
