We are excited to announce our first-ever student-led conferences! The student-led conference process empowers the student to direct and report on his/her progress at school. During the conference process, students will report on academic progress, discuss goals, review assessment data, and showcase examples of their school and course work.
The student-led conference process is much different from the traditional parent-teacher conference in which the teacher does most of the talking and the parent does the listening. Often, in such conferences, the student is not even present. However, in this situation, the parent first conferences with the student, and then circulates to talk with individual teachers regarding their student’s progress. Often, several conferences will be going on at one time within the same room.
We believe that the student-led conference process puts the responsibility for reporting learning where it needs to be and that is with the student. We are pleased with the learning that is happening at TCMS and know that our students are eager to present their progress to their parents/guardians.
All conferences will take place in the Cafeteria, on March 23rd, 4-7 pm. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the school.
