Advancing to high school marks a pivotal transition in your student's life. The Grade 8 Student-Parent Education & Career Conference (SPECC) can be a key moment in the transition process. The SPEC conference brings together your student's educational experience and personal growth and begins to focus on future dreams and goals.
Parents are important members of the SPEC conference team. This conference is designed to help parents gain a more indepth understanding of the their child's development and for students to gain insight into the direction they are headed for the future. Our task will be to determine how we can help your student create and achieve broadly based goals for his/her future.
Conferencing provides parents and students the opportunity to discuss talents, abilities, and interests in a positive atmosphere and to begin developing a 4-year high school plan. SPEC Conferences are scheduled during the school day from 8am until 4pm. The length of the conference is typically 45 minutes and includes both parents and their son or daughter. We hope this planning time can lead students and parents to better insight and clarification as we head into the future.
