Parent-teacher conferences are the perfect opportunity for parents and teachers to connect to discuss a student's progress, including areas where a student excels and areas where extra support may be helpful.
Eudora Schools offers conferences for all students every year in October, toward the end of the first academic quarter. Dates and times of October conferences in each school are available on the district calendar or by contacting the school office.
Appointment-only conferences also are offered in mid-September for students who may benefit from additional support earlier in the year. Also listed on the district calendar, these conferences are typically requested by a teacher but also can be initiated by a parent. Kindergarten families may take advantage of similar appointment-only conferences in February of each year.
While formal conference dates and times can be helpful, parents are ALWAYS encouraged to e-mail or call a teacher to request an informal conference at any time. Whether to address concerns, request information or ask questions, parent-teacher conferences are the most effective way to work together to support a student.
Conference scheduling & format
The October conferences are scheduled differently at the elementary and secondary levels.
