The Monroe City School District is devoted to providing the best possible education for its students. With high expectations for all students, parents, and staff, the district is committed to creating a safe and caring environment that will help students become successful citizens. To ensure that all available resources are used to prepare students for the ever-changing technological world, teachers and school staff are encouraged to attend parent-teacher meetings. Administrators can also be present if requested by a parent or guardian.
In some cases, teachers may even invite their students to join part of the meeting, to demonstrate that both parents and educators are part of the instructional team. It's important for parents to understand that these meetings are about each student's individual educational level, not their position in class. Parents may want to know how their children compare to their peers, but it's important to keep the focus on the student's progress. It's important to be open to constructive criticism during parent-teacher meetings, but if the discussion becomes too heated or goes off track, it's best to end the meeting and reconvene at a later date.
