Conference Scheduler
   

Greetings Boeckman Community! We are nearing the time for fall conferences they are scheduled to take place on October 12th and 17th. This fall you are invited along with your student(s) to participate.

In Tiger Connections your student(s) will be preparing a Conferences Passport that is personalized to them. On the passport your student will note their scheduled family interview time (you will schedule this), suggest what teachers they need to see during “Open Time”, indicate if they believe information sessions need to be attended and if there are any locations in the building they would like to show and tell you about. We want to have time to meet with you but allow the flexibility for your family to personalize their conference experience.

We will be using a slightly modified format that we believe will be very beneficial. Each family will schedule their 10-minute family interviews with their child’s Tiger Connections teacher using this link. We are excited to have you engage in a conversation about your child's learning. We believe families know a great deal about how their children learn best and know when their child is struggling. This is an opportunity for us discuss your child’s learning goals and activities, discuss ways to best track their progress and support them in their learning. We value the information you share during this time so much that if you are unable to attend we will be sending the family interview home via email for you to submit electronically.

The feedback we have received is that it would be nice to have an opportunity to clarify a question with a specific teacher. Therefore we will have building-wide “Open Times” for you to stop and visit with any teacher you wish. The “Open Times” will rotate between core and specialist teachers; those times are listed below. You may find that through Infinite Campus and Schoology, that you do not have a need to utilize the “Open Times” and that is perfectly ok!

Schoology and Campus information sessions will be offered during conferences. This will be a parent education opportunity to learn more about how to support your children’s learning both during and outside of the school day using Schoology and Campus.

Please be mindful that our staff may have a number of students and parents that may want to see them during this short window. A few minutes would be an appropriate amount of time to visit and if additional time is needed after our conference evenings it can be requested directly from the teacher.
