PARENT CONFERENCES/REPORT CARDS -----------------------------------------------------

Posted by:


Parent conferences are scheduled twice during the school year in October and March. The October conferences are an opportunity for teachers and parents to share information about the student early in the school year. The March conference dates are scheduled for elementary parents only and allow for report card progress information to be shared and discussed. Elementary Report cards are accessible through the parent portal at the end of each marking period in December, March and June.

At the middle and high school level, report cards and teacher comments provide a rating of the student’s achievement compared to his/her ability – in all levels. Close contact between school and home is encouraged, and conferences may be scheduled at the request of either the parent or the teacher. Report cards are accessible through the Parent Portal at the end of each marking period in November, January, April and June. Parents and guardians should note that conferences may be scheduled at their request at other times during the school year. A detailed guide for report cards and conferences can be found at www.bcsdny.org/parents. Parents/guardians with questions about their child’s progress in school, should direct their questions first to the classroom teacher, then to their child’s guidance counselor or school principal. Faculty members who have direct instructional contact with your child are usually best able to answer questions or address concerns.
