Student-Led Goal-Setting Meetings
Wednesday, September 19, 2018 8:55 AM

You’re invited to student-led, goal-setting meetings on Wednesday, September 26, which is an early release day.

Meetings begin at 2:00 and continue until 7:30 PM. Each family will have a 15-minute slot to meet as a crew (student, guardian, and teacher) to discuss and create a plan for the success of the student.

The student will lead the discussion and share their strengths and areas for growth based on their grades and behavior. Leading this discussion helps develop essential skills that adolescents need to take responsibility for their education. Learn more about the value of student-led goal-setting meetings in this article from Education World magazine.

This meeting gives the student an opportunity to look at their progress and set an intentional goal for the year. Teachers and family members will then discuss ways to improve and support this goal. Students will practice running the meeting during Crew prior to the actual meeting.

If you have questions about grades, curriculum, or behavior, feel free to check the parent portal, email your student’s teachers, and/or stop by our drop-in conferences on October 16 from 4:30 - 8:00 PM and October 17 from 9:30 AM - 12:00 PM.

Students will bring home a letter with time slots to sign up for goal-setting meetings. If you have specific questions about goal-setting meetings, contact your student’s Crew leader.
