Do you have a child in a K-5, K-6, K-7 or K-8 school in SD83?
Just a reminder that Thursday, November 21 is an important date as it is student-parent-teacher conference day in many of our schools. This means it will also be an early dismissal day.
Assistant Superintendent of Schools Carl Cooper explains with the new curriculum, SD83 has been working hard to update assessment and reporting practices to make them as helpful and relevant as possible for students and parents.
Individualized student-parent-teacher conferences are a part of this new process. After a pilot project two years ago, and then full implementation last year, the conferences received over 80 per cent positive feedback from parents.
Parents should have received information about early dismissal times and registering for a conference time from their child’s teacher/school. If you have any questions please contact the principal at your child(ren)’s school.
