Conferences: Do Your Homework

How parents can get the most out of the limited time:

  • Ask your child to share concerns before you go.
  • Bring written notes and questions.
  • Tell the teacher about at-home issues that might be impacting your child's academics.
  • Don't be antagonistic. View the teacher as your partner.
  • If teacher uses jargon, ask for simple explanations and specifics about your child's work.
  • Keep the conversation focused on your child—not your childhood, the teacher's workload or views on the curriculum.
  • Discuss strategies you and the teacher can use to help your child. Write out common goals.
  • Ask for follow-up emails and conversations.
