Citywide Parent Teacher Conferences are held four times a year. These conferences provide a great opportunity for you to talk with your child's teacher about what your child is learning at school and how you can support this learning at home.
The most recent contract between the United Federation of Teachers and the New York City Department of Education also provides 40 minutes each week for teachers to work with family members. Schools can use this time to build stronger home-school connections, to better support the learning of every child, and to help identify and develop parent leaders.
