Family-teacher conferences at YES Prep elementary schools provide an opportunity for families to meet with their child’s teacher to better understand their SPARKS grade-level readiness and progress toward learning goals.

Family-teacher conferences provide an opportunity for the school and the family to come together to partner on how to support students to ensure they are on track to be college-ready.  

On Fri., Feb. 9, 2024, our YES Prep elementary schools will host Family-Teacher Conference Day. Please be on the lookout for school-specific information on who is required to attend the conferences, and how to request and sign up for a conference.  

Family engagement is the core of student success at school. Please ensure that you maintain an open and constant communication with your child’s teacher.

Why are Family-Teacher Conferences Important:  

  • Family-Teacher Conferences help families become involved and stay involved in their child's education. 

  • Family-Teacher Conferences provide an opportunity for families to connect with the teacher and other service providers to discuss the child’s academic progress, social development and overall performance in school. 

  • Family-Teacher Conferences are a great opportunity to share academic progress and growth based on classroom observations, testing data, assessments, portfolios and assignments. 

  • Family-Teacher Conferences are a crucial opportunity for identifying and resolving challenges that can impede a child’s growth. These conferences provide all people involved with a child's education a chance to voice concerns about a child’s behavior, academic difficulties or social interactions. These conferences allow families and teachers to work together to find solutions to specific challenges hindering students in reaching their learning goals.  

Your child’s success at school depends on a strong partnership between home and school.
