Getting the Best for Your Child from Parent-Teacher Meetings

Parent-Teacher Meetings are a valuable tool to help you and your child’s teacher(s) work together for your child’s school success. This is a wonderful opportunity for parents to ask questions and gather information that will help parents encourage their children to achieve. When parents and teachers work together with mutual respect and caring, children achieve more at school and are happier to be there.  Suggestions to help parents with the meeting:

· Ask about your child’s work habits, behaviour, participation and learning style.

· Ask how instruction is differentiated to meet your child’s learning needs.

· Ask the teacher about learning targets, assessment, classroom routines and discipline.

End the meeting on a positive note and keep in regular contact with the teacher to follow up on the mutually agreed plan. Talk with your child about what was discussed and how you and the teacher will work together at improving the child’s learning.
