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.
