What You Need to Know About Parent Observations

Parents have two opportunities during the school year, once in the fall and once in the spring, to observe their child in the classroom in anticipation of parent conferences. Observations give you a chance to see your child in action and later discuss anything of note with your teacher during conferences. We welcome and encourage parents to take advantage of this unique opportunity. 

 

In keeping with safety precautions, we will invite parents to observe virtually this year. Sign ups for observations will be sent out next week, but in the meantime, here is a quick rundown of what a virtual observation entails:

 

  • All observations will be live streamed, not recorded.

  • A staff member will live stream a feed of the classroom from a tablet. This person will be inside the classroom for maximum visuals.

  • All parents in a given classroom will be able to watch the live stream.

  • Parents will sign up for observation slots via Sign Up Genius. 

  • There will be two slots for every classroom, and all slots are 30 minutes. Parents are welcome to sign up for one or both slots.

  • Zoom links may not be shared. Thank you for your cooperation in this safety precaution.

 

If anyone has any questions or concerns, or chooses to opt their child out, please contact Nicole Leapheart (nleapheart@gtms.org).

Thank you!
