Download: Parent-teacher conference surveys

ByJulie Rawe

Have you ever had a parent-teacher conference where you and the teacher didn’t see eye to eye? Or where you had a hard time understanding each other’s point of view? With a little preparation, a better conversation is possible.

Use these parent-teacher conference surveys to help you and the teacher understand more about each other’s perspective. The surveys only take a minute or two to complete. There are three versions you can download:

  • One for you
  • One for the teacher
  • One for your child

The surveys are quick and are designed to make it easy for you and the teacher to compare answers. The goal is to help both of you talk about what’s similar and what’s different in how you view things. It can also build a better relationship between you and the teacher.

When to fill out the surveys

Try to fill out the surveys a few days before your parent-teacher conference. Send an email asking if the teacher would be willing to try the survey with you.

If you don’t get the surveys done ahead of time, you can fill it out during the conference. Just make sure the teacher agrees ahead of time. Asking in advance can help you make the most of your time together.
