Campbellsville Middle School hosted student-led conferences on Monday, Feb. 13, with about 100 students and parents attending.
During the conferences, students discuss their grades with their parents and teachers.
Students have folders in each classroom to keep assignments and projects throughout each nine-week grading period to share with parents at the conferences. CMS students also complete reflection sheets on their grades and set goals for the remainder of the grading period.
Behavior reports are also printed and students share them with their parents during the conferences. Teachers are facilitators at the conferences, and are there to answer questions.
CMS Principal Elisha Rhodes said it’s an amazing experience to see students take ownership of their grades and behavior and share that information with their parents.
