During the conference, students
explain their progress toward and mastery of both academic (content/skill)
learning targets and character (Panther Pillar) expectations. Students share
their progress by leading their families through a portfolio of assignments
taken from academic classes.
Students share grades from each
class by referencing specific assignments that show their mastery of the
learning targets and Panther Pillars. Students also complete self-evaluations
of their performance in academic classes and share them with their families.
Students are held accountable for their progress when they explain areas of
strength and areas in need of improvement. The tone of the conference is
positive with a focus on what can be done to ensure success as opposed to what
has been done poorly.

As your student's Crew leader, I would like to schedule a Student

are mandatory for all students and families and count for an important grade
