Partnering with Families through Student-Led Conferences
In many schools and districts, like Cleveland Metro Schools in Ohio, educators are transforming teacher-led parent-teacher conferences in favor of student-led meeting formats that engage students in the process. These conferences can provide powerful opportunities for students to advocate for their own learning. If you would like to explore this idea for your own school or district, access this toolkit from Edutopia. Edutopia has curated how-to guides, example videos, checklists, and printables. Districts already implementing student-led conferences say the key to success is adequate preparation for staff, students, and families. Use this resource from Edutopia to hit the ground running.
