Before You Get Started

  • Please use a Windows PC, Mac, or Chromebook to schedule your child's conferences. Please do not use a mobile device.
  • Conference Schedules are set on the household level. Families with parents in separate households will each be able to schedule Parent Teacher Conferences, even if the resident parent has already scheduled their own. 
  • Conferences are scheduled by teacher, not by class. If your child has multiple classes with a single teacher, you will only be able to schedule one conference.
