School District Using New Parent-Teacher Conference Model

The Shelby County Schools logo

Shelby County Schools is using an innovative model to elevate the efforts of traditional parent-teacher conferences. Fourteen district elementary schools are implementing Academic Parent-Teacher Teams (APTT) this school year.

The APTT model invites all families whose children share a classroom teacher to meet collectively, rather than individually, in order to drive student growth and boost achievement.

During the meetings, parents and teachers review student progress data, set parent–student academic goals, and practice skill-building activities that can be used at home to support student learning. Families also receive the opportunity to meet each other and build community.
