Parent-teacher conferences are an opportunity to engage in conversation about your child’s learning. Parents/guardians and teachers are able to connect face-to-face and communicate openly about student learning, especially with respect to areas of strength and areas of growth. They help build and sustain respectful relationships that allow both parties to share information and develop strategies to support student success.​​​

Parent-Teacher Conferences

Student Learning Conference Dates

  • Student Learning Conferences occur once each semester.

VIRTUAL Student | Teacher | Parent Conferences

* Please note that HUB students across the CBE will have conferences in November.  More news to come. Please do not book into these conferences as there will be a separate date/ time for HUB classes.

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 ABE Staff List

To support the process on October 29, 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. 

We appreciate your participation in our virtual interviews.  We also recognize technology challenges may emerge.  Please provide your cell phone as a backup.
