Secondary Parent Teacher Conferences (PTC) on the horizon

Monday, 8 October, 2018

With the upcoming Secondary Parent Teacher Conferences (PTC) on the horizon (29th October 15:30-19:00 & 30th October 10:00-17:00) it can be important to prepare a few questions in advance to make conversation with your child/children’s teachers as fruitful and as rich as possible. From the LD Online website they’ve put together a useful list of questions to direct conversation at any PTC - considering 2/3 questions for the 10 minute slots with teachers will really enrich the discussion:

  1. What are the concepts that will be covered this semester?
  2. How will this be evaluated?
  3. What types of tests and evaluations will my child have to take this semester?
  4. What are my child’s strengths and weaknesses in this subject?
  5. Is my child participating in class discussions and activities?
  6. Do you think my child is reaching his or her potential?
  7. What can I do at home to help support my child’s academic progress?
  8. Is there anything else I should be aware of at this point?
