Student-Led Conferences


In the fall of 2011 PMHS implemented student-led conferences (SLC) in grades 7-12.  During the fall and spring, grade-level advisors facilitate a conference with each of their advisees and parents or guardians.  Other relatives, peers, and/or staff members are also invited to attend.


The purpose of a student-led conference is for the student to take the lead role in a presentation that articulates his or her academic, personal and social growth.  Each student creates a portfolio that contains a collection of work, reflections and evidence of their growth over time to be used as a communication tool regarding their learning.

Student and Teacher Resources

The sample letter and agenda may be customized to the grade level and/or the student. The agenda is a general template and it may be helpful for students to create their own agenda with a checklist.
