Parent-teacher conference can be more meaningful if parents know what to expect and if they know what role they will play in the conference. This resource offers a two-page information sheet for parents/guardians to fill out prior to the conference and an action planning sheet that the teacher and parent/guardian complete together at the conference. Also included are suggestions for how to include the learner in the discussion.
