On Track Conferences

This year, Maine South High School is going back to invite-only conferences on October 6th from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm.  We have been using the invite model for four years with some limited spaces for parents to reserve time with teachers and in 2019, we were invite-only.  Due to discussions about student academic progress and mental health, we will return to invite-only so we can spend more time with students who require deeper conversation.

 

For invited students, the purpose of the conferences will be to discuss your student’s performance in the class and how you can work together with the teacher to support your student’s progress.  Students and families will receive individual email invitations from teachers by September 30, 2022, and information on how to make an appointment through our virtual platform called “Meet the Teacher.”

 

All families are encouraged to reach out to their student’s teachers at any time throughout the school year.  Email is the best way to have an open line of communication with teachers, especially if you have simple questions or concerns about your child’s progress in the class.  In addition, the Parent Portal on Infinite Campus gives up-to-date information regarding your student’s grades.  Lastly, many teachers use Google Classroom as a platform for classroom management tools and resources.  Ask your student to log into their Google Classrooms and show you assignments and activities associated with their classes.
