VIRTUAL Student-Teacher-Parent Conferences for students at Chinook Park School (Nov. 19/20, 2020)
* Please note that HUB students across the CBE will have conferences in December 3 and 4. More news to follow via your child’s HUB teacher. Please do not book into these conferences as there will be a separate date/ time for HUB classes.
To accommodate conferences, there will be no classes on Friday, November 20. Thursday November 19 will be a full day of school for students.
- Thursday November 19 (3:00-7:00 pm)
- Friday November 20 (8:00 – 12:00 pm)
Friday November 13 starting at 6:00 pm to Wednesday November 18 ending at 6:00 pm.
Bookings must be done through the CBE Parent Portal in PowerSchool. Parents will access the conference booking through their My CBE Account.
Given the meetings are virtual using Microsoft Teams, parents are asked to please consider having a ten-minute break in between interviews to maximize their time with a teacher.
If you are new to School Conferences and Microsoft Teams, please review the School-Conferences-Parent-Guide-Joining-Online.pdf
The link to join Microsoft Teams Virtual meeting will be embedded in your email confirmation.
If a teacher becomes completely booked, please e-mail teachers using our Staff List
To support the process on November 19th and 20th, we ask that parents please:
a. preload 'Microsoft Teams' onto your digital device.
b. review your child's progress in PowerSchool prior to the interview. What question(s) may you have?
c. in the event 'Microsoft Teams' doesn't work, please provide a parent's cell phone number in the 'notes' section when booking the interview. As a backup, the teacher will call you.
d. when a teacher invites you into the meeting, please keep your camera on. We would like visual confirmation that a parent is present.
e. include your child in the discussions. A conversation with the student, family and teacher tends to be the most effective.
f. interviews are 10 minutes long and are back to back. Teachers will do their best to stay on time. Parents can only log in to Microsoft Teams 5 minutes prior to the interview starting.
g. if you are a CBE employee, using your CBE email, please do not log into your Student Conference until the exact time of your meeting, otherwise you will interrupt the current meeting as you do not have the waiting room access.
We appreciate your participation in our virtual interviews. We also recognize technology challenges may emerge. Please provide your cell phone as a backup.
