Greetings From Gail

March 26, 2015

Three-way conferences are taking place this week. Friday is three-way conference day, but teachers accommodate families the best they can if you need another day and time for the conference. For those of you new to three-way conferences, I would like to share with you why we support this type of conference at our schools.

  • A three-way conference involves parents, students and teachers in reflecting on student achievement, discussing work samples and setting future goals.
  • A three-way conference acknowledges the most important participants in the learning process (student, teacher and parent)
  • The child is involved in the discussion about their performance.
  • The student provides information to clarify what they have learned and what challenges they face.
  • It places the student at the heart of the assessment and reporting process.
  • It allows the student to see their parents and teacher as a team.
  • The students will begin by discussing their personal learning plan.
  • The student will present work samples to highlight strengths and areas for future development..
  • Throughout the conference parents and the teacher are encouraged to ask questions, provide feedback and encouragement to the student.
  • Parents are encouraged to share their thoughts and ideas on what is being presented and on what goals or targets they think are appropriate.
