Guam – The Guam Department of Education is reminding parents that the first quarter parent-teacher conferences will be held next week. Elementary School conferences will be held on Tuesday November 5th, Middle Schools on Wednesday November 6th and High Schools on Thursday November 7th, with the exception of Southern High that already had theirs on October 4.
Please see below for times at each location.
In conjunction with the conferences this year, Superintendent Jon Fernandez is also coordinating aneffort to update parent contact information at the school sites. This is necessary as GDOE is preparingto launch an automated notification system to keep parents informed of school specific activitiesincluding student attendance.
“We are asking parents to take a couple of minutes during the parentteacher conferences to check the contact information we have on file for them,” said Fernandez. “This will enable us to send email, text and voice messages informing parents when their child is not inclass.”
To support this initiative the Student Support Services Division will have personnel present atall schools during the conferences to help guide parents on how to update information.
