Elementary Conference Q & A

A. How was this plan brought about? As part of the Comprehensive School Improvement plan the CSI team has implemented elementary entrance conferences to help teachers learn about the student prior to the start of school. In addition, this is an opportunity for families to get to know the teacher and any specifics that may be helpful in their child's learning process. 

B. What is McGregor school hoping to gain by adding these at the beginning of the school year? Entrance conferences give valuable insight to not only teacher and student, but parent/guardian as well. In this conference a parent/guardian may share things about their child that may be important for the teacher to know. This will enhance the learning experience in the classroom and answer any questions parent/guardian may have as we start off the school year. A reading assessment will take place rather than taking valuable classroom time capturing this data at the start of the year.  This conference will be a great place for parent/guardian to learn about JMC. JMC is the online parent portal that McGregor school uses. This year you can expect less paper trail communication from the school. Communication will take place through JMC in way of text, email or both. You may make online payments through JMC, communicate with a teacher, check student grades, discipline, attendance, etc. 

C. What can parents expect to discuss? It is insightful for teachers to hear about your child. Example: Family dynamics, student skillsets, areas of improvements, your child's hobbies, strengths and concerns. 

D. This is new for elementary in 2019-2020. Can parents of high school students request entrance meetings as well? At the current time, the high school is not participating in entrance conferences, but families may always request a meeting with any teacher or stop by at conferences and engage in a get to know conversation.
