Parent Teacher Conferences

Questions to Ask


Here are some questions that may help you have a productive conversation with the teacher:

  • What is my child expected to learn, know, and do at this grade level?

  • What does my child do well, and what does my child struggle with? Can you give me examples?

  • How do you know when my child is making progress and when they need additional help?

  • What are you doing to support and motivate my child?

  • How do you challenge my child when they are already doing well at something?

  • What does my child get excited about learning?

  • What can I do at home to support my child?

  • Are there programs or services in the community that could also help my child?

  • Are there times when my child is more or less engaged?

  • Has my child made friends?

  • How does my child get along with classmates and adults?

  • Does my child participate in class discussions and group activities?
