Between now and Friday, May 22, 2020, NYC public schools are holding this school year’s last round of conferences via phone and video conferencing applications.
If you are the parent or guardian of an NYC public school student, these conferences provide you with a great opportunity to connect with your child’s teachers and discuss how your child is adjusting to learning at home during unprecedented times. You can use your conference to focus on any challenges you may have observed, or to discuss any concerns about your child’s progress in school as the 2019–2020 school year starts to come to a close.
Teachers should have already contacted you directly to schedule conferences at times that are convenient for both of you to attend. If you have not scheduled a conference this month, please reach out to your child’s teachers at your earliest convenience.
For conference tips and information about the DOE’s updated grading policy for the 2019-2020 school year, check out our previous post, “Time to Connect for May’s Parent Teacher Conferences”
On behalf of the DOE, we wish you and a your family a great end to the month!
