Parent/Teacher Conference

Sometimes, you just have to go back to the old way of doing things. The previous handful of conferences have seen Lexington Middle School go with student-led conferences. However, there had been some requests from parents for more face-to-face contact with teachers, being able to sit down with them one-on-one. Therefore, the decision was made to go back to the traditional method for the October conference. It appeared to be well attended. The ELL team pulled in 100% parent attendance. We also gave our students a "computer incentive". We had them keep the computers at school before conferences, and then when they had visited with their teachers, they received the computer back. Sometimes a little incentive goes a long ways. In February, we will be going back to student-led conferences, so teachers, parents, and students will "get the best of both worlds" (well, conference-wise).
