This is a "just out of curiosity" post. Last night our high school had a parent teacher conference. From 4-6 parents could come in and go to whichever teachers they wanted to talk to without having to make an appointment.
When I was telling one of my friends about this she said that she hasn't been to a parent teacher conference for her kids since elementary school. In the areas they have lived the schools haven't had them.
So I'm curious in your area are parent teacher conferences only for elementary schools or do your middle and High schools also offer specific times for parent teacher conferences? Now we can also get ahold of the teachers and schedule a conference during the teachers free-time during school day anytime. I'm just curious about the ones the school schedules.
