Allapattah Flats K8 recently held student led conferences with every child on campus in kindergarten through eighth grade. Parents attended conferences where the students had the opportunity to take the lead. Students presented their academic data as well as goals they set for themselves throughout the semester. They shared work samples, projects, and assessments that allowed parents to see what they do in class as well as track their progress over the course of the nine weeks. Students were able to discuss their strengths and weaknesses and present their goals for the upcoming semester. All students spent time going over their portfolio with either parents or staff members. More than 300 parents attend this event as well as more than 60 staff members who volunteered to participate and meet with students at all grade levels. Parents, students and staff members all enjoyed the event and look forward to the next conferences in May. Pictured are Connor Cook and Nicole Cook tucked away in a quiet corner as they go through Connor’s portfolio during conferences.
