Working with your child’s teacher

Checklist: Questions to Ask at Your Parent-Teacher Conference

By Reading Rockets, Understood Founding Partner

Knowing that you have to go to your child’s school for a parent-teacher conference may make you feel nervous, intimidated or frustrated. Bring this printable list of questions with you, and you’ll be likely to leave your meeting with the information you need to further your child’s school experience.

If your child receives special services (gifted programs, special education, English classes, speech or occupational therapy or support for a learning disability), ask about the frequency of these services and about your child’s progress with them.

For more information on how to get ready for your parent-teacher conference, check out our preparation tips.
