Parent Teacher Conferences were held at three of the Wayne County Schools on September 19 from 4:00 to 7:00 p.m.
Walker Early Learning Center welcomed parents of kindergarten students only, since preschool teachers make home visits instead at the start of the school year. Kindergarten teachers shared all of the student data they had collected at this point which included: MAP Progress Report, NSGRA data, Reading Horizons progress, and Reading Eggs and Math Seeds computerized software paths. Discussions were held regarding how each child was doing emotionally, while finding ways for parents to support their child at home in regard to their classroom work. Teachers offered tips and tricks on how to help these young learners.
Monticello Elementary parents were able to learn about MAP progress report (reading and math), NSGRA data, Reading Horizons progress, concerns on quick checks (computation mastery), and MobyMax data (progress). Discussions concerning student effort, conduct, and/or performance were addressed.
Wayne County Middle School teachers shared MAP reports from fall benchmark assessments. Parents received information detailing their child's recent performance, explanation of what their scores meant and resources for how to support continued improvement at home.
