Parent-teacher conferences will be remote

New York Teacher

Although public schools have resumed full in-person learning, parent-teacher conferences will be remote during the 2021–22 school year.

All schools will have afternoon and evening parent teacher conferences in November and March [see 2021–22 school calendar for the dates]. Teachers in both single-session and multi-session schools will be able to conduct evening parent-teacher conferences remotely, and they will be able to conduct the afternoon conferences remotely if their commute allows.

Single-session schools that have the default school day of six hours and 20 minutes, Mondays through Fridays, with extended time for professional development, parent engagement and Other Professional Work, will also have a Meet the Staff Night, Curriculum Night or other nontraditional parent-teacher evening event in September and a traditional parent-teacher conference in May. Both are three hours and will be remote.

Multi-session, District 75, District 79 and single-session schools that conducted a school-based option (SBO) vote for one of the two preapproved six-hour and 50-minute workdays do not have September and May parent-teacher conferences. Their evening parent-teacher conferences in November and March are 2.5 hours.

In single-session schools, all three-hour evening conferences will begin no earlier than 4:30 p.m. and end no later than 8 p.m.
