BULLHEAD CITY — All nine schools in the Bullhead City Elementary School and Colorado River Union High School districts will have their first parent-teacher conferences of the spring semester on Thursday. The districts are again involving students in the process. This is the third parent/teacher conference of the 2017-2018 school year.
Most students will have a short day of school Thursday, followed by the student-led parent/teacher conferences in the afternoon and early evening. Hours and formats vary slightly by school.
Elementary and junior high conferences are generally starting between 1:10 p.m. and 1:45 p.m., running until 7 p.m. High school conferences are scheduled from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m.
Parents unable to attend Thursday’s conferences may schedule appointments with their students’ teachers and counselors. Some schools have asked parents to schedule appointments Thursday to avoid backlogs; others have not.
The students share what they’ve learned in class, and the teachers explain goals and curriculum with parents. Teachers also will go over students’ individual test scores, as well as answer parents’ questions.
At the three high schools, parents also may complete parent surveys or forms for free or reduced student lunches. At Mohave and River Valley high schools, they may sign up for state-funded math or reading tutoring,
Additional information about Thursday’s
student-led parent/teacher conferences is available from each of the four elementary, two junior high and three high schools in the Bullhead City Elementary School and Colorado River Union High School districts.
