Information About Middle & High School Parent-Teacher Conferences10/23/2020
Dear Families of PPS Secondary Students,
During Comprehensive Distance Learning, opportunities are built into the schedule for all families to be able to connect with teachers during office hours. As in a traditionally formatted year, we will also be offering parent-teacher conferences (morning to evening) on November 23-24.
In a typical year, Middle and High School Parent-Teacher Conferences are usually conducted arena-style, with families meeting with educator teams in a gymnasium or large common school space. These conferences are typically 5-10 minutes in length, and teachers are available to connect with families, morning through evening, with breaks for meals.This year, since conferences will be held online, to ensure best access for families, we are offering conferences by appointment. In line with PPS’s commitment to improving student outcomes for historically underserved students, including students with disabilities and students who are learning English, schools will priority-schedule conference slots prior to opening conference appointments to all families. Schools are using online calendaring tools such as SignUp Genius or Google Calendar appointments. Appointments will open to all families mid-November. Your school will send additional information in upcoming weekly newsletters.
