Effective Parent Conferences
Elmore, Michael
Principal Leadership, v8 n6 p7-8 Feb 2008
Conferences with an upset parent, teacher, or student should be opportunities for schools to build relationships with the community and to foster a positive school culture. But in reality, they are often held because a problem has arisen and often end with stakeholders having a less-than-positive image of the school. Understanding the steps that an administrator, a counselor, or a teacher should follow during a conference can help it proceed more efficiently and end on a much more positive note. In this article, the author presents the seven stages of a productive conference with parents, teachers, and students.
