Tuesday, November 10, is Conference Day at Chester Academy. As in previous years, parents will sign up for their meeting time through PowerSchool PTC which is accessed through the PowerSchool Parent Portal. The link to PowerPTC does not appear in the PowerSchool phone app but instead you should use a computer, laptop or tablet. Once logged in, click on the link at the top of the PowerSchool display to schedule your conference.

If you do not have a PowerSchool account or have forgotten your password, please email techsupport@chesteracademy.org for assistance.

In keeping with our safety measures, conferences will be held remotely via the computer or phone. They will be fifteen minutes long and will be with your child’s homeroom/advisory teacher. In addition, you can sign up for a conference with your child’s integrated arts teacher or school counselor using the same process. Conference slots with our IA teachers and school counselors are extremely limited. Please schedule a conference with them if you have particular concerns.

If your child has an IEP, you may request that your child’s Case Manager or other service provider join you for your conference with your homeroom teacher. This request is based on availability.

Your teacher/advisor will send you the Meet link on Monday November 9th if your conference will be through the computer or the phone number if you will be calling in for your conference. It is important to be on time for your conference as there will be a hard stop after the fifteen minutes are over which allows the teacher time to log-in for the next parent conference.

In addition to the email from your child’s teacher(s), you will receive an email reminder of your conference time on Monday, November 9. The deadline to sign up for a conference is 9:00 AM on Monday, November 9.
