Eighth Grade Individual Planning Conference
Eighth Grade Individual Planning Conferences are scheduled during November, December, January, and February at Pulaski Community Middle School. These conferences are unlike traditional parent/teacher conferences. The focus is on each student’s personal and social growth, their educational and career development, and their high school planning process. Emphasis is placed on a review of overall academic performance, talents, abilities, interests, CareerCruising Assessment results, test results and transition activities to the high school.
Individual Planning Conferences are specifically designed conferences for parents to gain insight into their child’s development. Participation in the conference allows students to develop a direction for the future. Our task is to determine how we can help them create and achieve goals for their future. Parents are a key member of the conference team. Conferencing gives parents and students the opportunity to discuss talents, interests, academic performance, and future goals in a positive atmosphere, in addition to begin to develop an Individual Learning Plan (not intended for discussions of student behavior issues).
Together, we make the difference!
