Keep parents and teachers on task with an agenda for your meeting. Use this format everytime; just plug in the type of meeting, purpose, and teacher names. Agendas can be helpful in sticking to a time limit, keeping the topic of conversation relevant to the meeting, and making sure you cover all that needs to be said! Send the agenda home to the parents ahead of time so that they know who will be at their meeting and what will be discussed. It helps to create a more comfortable, relaxed, productive environment. Happy Meeting!
