This year elementary staff at Brooklyn, Haines, and South Baker are moving to a standards-based report card. Because of this change, staff have requested additional time for the conference process. Schools will increase the amount of time allotted per parent conference. The change will not affect middle school and high school student schedules.
“Conferences are an important avenue for sharing information with parents about their child’s progress on grade level goals,” said Superintendent Mark Witty. “We encourage all parents to take advantage of the opportunity to discuss their child’s school experience with staff.”
Baker School District has approved extending the conference schedule for this year. The Board will review input from staff, parents and administrators as they look at potential calendar changes in the future.
Grade Kg – 6 conferences will run from 7:30 am to 7:30 pm on Thursday, November 8th and will run half day, from 8:00 to 12:00, on Friday, November 9th. This change will result in release from school for students in grades K-6 on Thursday, November 8t h , with the exception of Keating elementary. Students enrolled at Keating as well as those in middle and high school will be released at half day on Thursday, November 8.
Parents are encouraged to contact building principals with any questions.
