Parent-teacher conferences at Enlightium Academy (Enlightium) consist of a meeting between the parents or guardians of a student and their teacher. Both parties discuss the student’s strengths and weaknesses in a particular course to determine how to best assist the student in moving forward. Conferences are available via email or phone (depending on your student's support program). Conferences for the rest of the 2019–2020 school year will take place in March 2020.
We understand that many families are busy, which is why parent-teacher conferences are available for an entire month (or longer, if needed). This time allows parents to easily plan a day and time that works for them and their student’s teacher.
Conferences are conducted monthly with the Primary School Coordinator. No parent-teacher conference form is needed.
Log in to your parent portal or the student’s portal to identify one or more courses to select for the parent-teacher conference.
The form will be available in the weeks preceding the November and March conference months. Depending on which form of communication the family chooses (if applicable based on the support program), the teacher will reach out to the family by phone or email. Please be patient, as it may take several weeks for the teacher to reach out.
Note: registration for March conferences ends on March 31 at 11:59 pm PST.
Your student’s teacher will reach out to your family via email once parent-teacher conferences begin. Due to the volume of parent-teacher conference requests, the emails are sent in the order in which they were received, so the conferences might carry over into the following month.
You are strongly encouraged to log into the parent or student portal at least once a week to see your student’s progress and grades. Please reach out to any of your student’s teachers or counselor at any point during the school year. You do not have to wait until the months of parent-teacher conferences to discuss with us any issues the student may be experiencing.
There are many collaborators in a student’s education: parents, administrators, counselors, teachers, and students. Parent-teacher conferences are an opportunity for teachers and parents to meet, often for the first time, and have an open discussion about the student’s academic performance.
Topics discussed may include:
For teacher contact information, refer to the teacher page or the welcome letter sent to the primary parent when your student started courses. Alternatively, your student can get contact information from their teacher through direct messaging within Ignitia.
