This program offers an alternative to traditional conferences by placing the responsibility and focus of the conference on the student. The student compiles a portfolio of work samples from each class to present to the parent. The student also presents the parent with an evaluation form from each class that both the teacher and the student have filled out. The parent and student set short-term goals and create a plan on how to achieve the goals. Finally, parents may visit their student’s teachers during the “friendly visit” hour of the conference. The Student Led Conference allows for open communication between the student and the parent with a focus on student success.
