Meet The Teacher Is The Easiest Way To Schedule A Parent Teacher Meeting
Parental and family engagement with the teacher and the school is one of the best ways to keep students engaged. When parents, guardians or family members get involved with their son or daughter’s education, it’s easier to drive student success. Also, when parents and guardians know what’s going on at school, it’s easier to help them when they get home. The key to that is effective parental communication and one of the biggest parts of that is parent teacher meetings and conferences.
The old way of organizing parent teacher conferences was both tedious and time consuming. Where there is only one teacher per class there’s typically 30 students and 60+ parents. When you factor in divorced parents and things of that nature that number escalates quickly.
Until recently all of this was managed on paper and pen and can get really disorganized really quickly. Invariably, the old way meant some parent slipped through the cracks, another one was unhappy and Tommy’s parents never found out he wrote an A+ report. This isn’t the way to manage a classroom and it isn’t the way to manage parent teacher communications
Luckily there’s Meet The Teacher and it does exactly what you think.
Meet The Teacher is an online platform that makes it incredibly easy to manage parent teacher conferences. Like several executive and enterprise level calendar apps, parents that want a parent teacher conference simply use the teachers Meet The Teacher portal, pick a time, get reminders and voila. Now parents and guardians are scheduling conferences when it’s convenient for them and teachers aren’t missing a beat with an up to the minute real time dashboard.
Meet The Teacher seamlessly syncs with all of the major student information systems. Other features include an entire suite to assist in student led conferences as well as team and group conferences.
