District 58 invites parents and guardians to sign up for winter 2023 parent-teacher conferences using the online PowerPTC conference signup system starting Thursday, Jan. 26 at 11 a.m. PowerPTC is the same tool families used to sign up for their fall conferences.
The online signup window will close on Monday, Feb. 6 at 11 a.m.
Parent-teacher conferences will be held in person. However, families who require a remote option should schedule their conference in PowerPTC and then change the meeting type from “in person” to “video conference.”
Conferences will take place:
Preschool through sixth grade conferences:
- Tuesday, Feb. 7 from 4:45-8 p.m.
- Thursday, Feb. 9 from 4:45-8 p.m.
Middle school conferences:
- Tuesday, Feb. 7 from 4:50-8 p.m.
- Thursday, Feb. 9 from 4:50-8 p.m.
District 58 values the family-to-school partnership, and parent-teacher conferences are a key component of communication and collaboration between home and school. However, the District has also received feedback that, as a result of strong communication that occurs on a more regular basis, a winter conference may not be necessary for all families. While we encourage families to sign up for a conference, if you do not feel that a conference is necessary at this time, no action is needed and you can disregard this and future communications regarding conferences.
