November Parent Conference Scheduling

Wed, 11/13/2019 - 1:51pm

This year the Howard County Public School System (HCPSS) will continue to use Synergy Conference Management to schedule Parent Teacher Conferences on November 25th and 26th. Although parents and guardians are always welcome to communicate with teachers regarding student progress, November 25th and 26th are designated Parent Teacher Conference days during the first half of the 2019-2020 school year. Beginning on Monday, November 11, 2019 you can log on to HCPSS Connect to access Synergy Conference Management. You can then choose your desired conference time based on each teacher’s availability. For parents without Internet access, please contact our front office staff at 410-313-6879 for assistance in scheduling conferences. *Calls coming in after 12:00 pm on Monday, November 25th will require scheduling a conference after the holiday break.

Tips for Scheduling Conferences:

  • Parent Teacher Conferences will be scheduled in 20-minute increments. To allow travel time from one teacher to the next, consider staggering your appointments to allow for full 20-minute conferences.
  • Parents are encouraged to sign up with your student’s homeroom teacher. You can also sign up with other teachers based on their availability in Synergy Conference Management.
  • Related Arts teachers have a limited number of conference times available in comparison to the number of students they teach. You are not required to schedule a related arts conference; however, we encourage you to schedule a conference if you have a concern or information you would like to discuss with the teacher.

Parents and guardians are encouraged to sign up online or call our main office prior to November 25, 2019. If you need assistance or have questions, please contact the school directly in order to confirm your meeting date and time(s).
