ECSD Fall Parent Teacher Conferences

ECSD Fall Parent Teacher Conferences

Dear Parents/Guardians:

The Effingham County Board of Education has designated October 4 for Fall Parent-Teacher Conference Day. On this day, students including Pre-K will be dismissed early from school, and parent-teacher conferences will be held in the afternoon. PLEASE EXPECT YOUR CHILD HOME EARLY ON WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 4, 2023. October 5th, 6th, and 9th are holidays for all students. The dismissal conference times for each school are listed below.

The purpose of the conference day is to give teachers and parents time to meet and discuss academic progress and concerns for students experiencing difficulty. Parents are also encouraged to monitor student performance continuously and stay informed through tools on the system website such as Parent Portal, which offers parents access to information on grades, assignments, and attendance. In order to accommodate all parents, teachers will host in person and virtual conferences. Each conference will be limited to 15 minutes. If you require additional time, please contact your child’s teacher.

Due to Pre-K guidelines, parent conferences will not be held for Pre-K students at this time. State guidelines require conferences to be held mid-year and at the end of the school term. You will be notified of your Pre-K conference date and time prior to Christmas break.
You will receive additional notice from your child’s school if your child’s teacher deems a conference is necessary at this point. Parents who plan to attend conferences will receive a time from their children’s teachers prior to the scheduled conference. Those parents wishing to have a virtual conference will also receive a link they will use to join the conference. Parents will need internet access as well as a computer or Chromebook with a camera and speakers in order to fully engage during the conference. I encourage you to schedule a conference so that we may work cooperatively to improve your child’s education.
