O.H. Anderson is again offering online scheduling for parent-teacher conferences through PTC Wizard. Online
scheduling will reduce the amount of paper shuffling between home and school and will provide families the
opportunity to schedule their conferences in "real time."
When scheduling your conferences for your student, please note the following:
Conference sessions are in 5 minute increments.

For 3rd grade conferences, parents can schedule 3 (5 minute) conference sessions with the
homeroom teacher and 1 (5 minute) conference session with the math teacher , if it is not the same
homeroom teacher.
For example, if the homeroom teacher is the same teacher for math, you would
schedule 4 (5 min.) sessions each for a total of 20 min. with that teacher.
If your child has a different math teacher you would schedule 3 (5 minute)conference sessions with the homeroom teacher and 1 (5 minute) conference session
with the math teacher. You would then have 15 minutes total with the homeroom teacher,
and 5 minutes with the math teacher.

 For 4th grade conferences, parents can schedule 1 (5 minute) conference session with the
homeroom teacher, 1 (5 minute) session with the math teacher, 1 (5 minute) session with the
literacy/writing teacher, and 1(5 minute) session with the social studies/science teacher.
 For example, if the homeroom teacher is the same teacher for math, you would
schedule 5 min. each for a total of 10 min. with that teacher.

 For 5th grade conferences, parents can schedule 1 (5 minute) conference session with the
homeroom teacher, 1(5 minute) session with the math teacher, 1 (5 minute)session with the
literacy/writing teacher and 1 (5 minute) session with the science/social studies teacher .

 Parents are encouraged to build in “transition” time from classroom to classroom, rather than
 scheduling the sessions always back-to-back.
 Parents can also schedule conferences with the specialists (Art, Music, Spanish, Media, Phy-
 Ed, Math, Reading, and Student Services).
 If you are a two household family, please coordinate the conferences .
 If your schedule allows for flexibility, Friday conferences generally have more openings.
