Whether scheduling families, blocking off time for breaks or long conferences, marking family attendance, or emailing reminders and notes to families, it can all be done in jmc Teacher. The Teacher Conference Scheduler module allows teachers to fully manage their own conference schedule! Your administration sets the date and timeframe for the Teacher Conferences, but you get to set the available time slots for families. Woohoo!
To get started, log in to jmc Teacher and head to Teacher Conference Scheduler.
Step One: Select the conference day you'd like to work with using the "Conference Day" drop-down list.
Helpful Tip: The days listed in the "Conference Day" drop-down list are pre-populated by the school office staff. If you need a new day added, ask your office team member for help.
Step Two: Select a parent and student from the "Parent-Student" drop-down list in a time slot to manually schedule a conference or select "Blocked Off" to schedule a break.
A few helpful tips
As families schedule their conferences in the jmc Family portal, the drop-down list will be filled in automatically for you.
Need to override the appointment? Simply use the "Parent-Student" drop-down list to change conference attendees.
Step Three: Select where the conference will take place using the "Room" drop-down list.
Step Four: Enter notes before the conference using the "Comments" field.
Helpful Tip: Add a little pizzazz to your message using the formatting tools.
Step Five: Click the "Save Comments" button to save your conference notes.
Step Six: Place a checkmark in the "Parent Attend" checkbox if the family attends the conference to track conference attendance.
Step Seven: Click the "Print" button to print a copy of your parent-teacher conferences schedule for quick reference as to which families are coming and when.
