What is An Academic Conference?
Like all good conversations, parent- teacher conferences are best when both people talk and listen. The conference is a time for you to learn about your child’s progress in school; ask to see data about your child’s attendance, grades and test scores. Find out whether your child is meeting school expectations and academic standards. This is also a time for the teacher to learn about what your child is like at home. When you tell the teacher about your child’s skills, interests, needs, and dreams, the teacher can help your child more.
The academic conference has been scheduled through your advisory teacher. The academic conference is designed to help parents understand the key skills your child will learn in core subjects, which will build a strong foundation for success in the other subjects he or she studies throughout the school year. The academic conference will focus on ways to help your child meet the expectations outlined in these standards, so he or she will be well prepared for high school.
What is An Drop-In Conference?
DCMS welcomes and encourages parents to see all of your student’s teachers during these scheduled conference times. We have provided drop-in times ten minutes after your student’s conferences. If you drop-in and teachers appear to be busy with another student, please wait and/or come back in a few minutes. DCMS wants all parents to be able to see all of their child’s teachers if they would like to do so.
What is a Conference Visitation Form?
To encourage students and parents to attend a scheduled parent/teacher conference, we are offering a non-uniform day for attendance. To receive the non-uniform day each student must pick-up a conference attendance form and parent reflection form from your advisory teacher at the time of your arrival. The conference attendance form needs to be completed by attending the scheduled academic conference. At the end of the conference, students turn in the conference attendance and parent reflection form in the library and pick-up their non-uniform day bracelet.
