Greetings Dodge Community! 

We are nearing the time for student-led conferences that take place on March 1st and 6th.  We have had student-led conferences in place for many years and really believe in the value of the student being an integral part of the conversation.  It allows students the opportunity to assume greater control and responsibility of their learning, engage in the process of self-reflection and evaluation, and develop organizational and oral communication skills.  

Once upon a time, conferences were almost an “unveiling” of a snapshot of where a student’s grades were at and that simply is not the case anymore with instant access to all sorts of evidence of learning.  With Family Web Access and Schoology, students and their parent/guardian can monitor learning daily. 

Additionally, we encourage families to reach out to staff at any time with specific questions you may have, not just during conferences.  You can access all of our staff via email or phone by clicking on our STAFF DIRECTORY

 This spring we will continue with a format that we believe will be very beneficial.  We will still continue to have a 15 minute student-led conference hosted by the student’s Tiger Connections Teacher.  Parents/Guardians can sign up online HERE to choose a conference time.  Feedback we have received during some of our recent Parent Ambassador meetings is that it would be nice to have an opportunity to clarify a question with a specific teacher.  Therefore we will have building-wide “Open Times” for parents to stop and visit with any teacher they wish.  You may find that through Infinite Campus, Schoology, and the individual student-led conference that you do not have a need to utilize the “Open Times” and that is perfectly ok! 

Please read this Letter to the DMS Community about student-led conferences and our open times.
