Virtual Parent Teacher Student Interviews June 2020
Virtual Parent-Student-Teacher conferences have been scheduled for all year levels on:
Monday 8th June, 3.30pm - 8:00pm and Thursday 11th June, 3:30pm - 8.00pm
Whilst students are enjoying the physical return to QACI, we are still faced with social distancing for adults and restrictions on visitors and gatherings at school venues.
With these Government restrictions, we are providing parents and carers the opportunity to engage in a video conference involving parents, student and teacher using the Microsoft Teams application on the QACI student laptop.
Classes finish at 2.30pm on both days. This will allow time for a majority of students to travel home and be ready for interviews to begin at 3.30pm. For students requiring longer travel times, parents will need to book interview times to accommodate family circumstance.
How will it all happen?
- Parents will book a 10 minute interview time with the teacher using the PTOnline booking system.
- Student (with parents beside) will setup the laptop and login to MS Teams at their location prior to the booked interview time.
- Teachers will initiate the MS Teams meeting to the student laptop at the booked time of each interview.
- Parents and student will join the conference with the teacher via the meeting request sent by the teacher through MS Teams on the student’s laptop.
How to book your interviews:
Bookings can be made online using the PTOnline system from 6.00pm on Wednesday 27 May. Bookings will close at 8.00am on Tuesday 2 June. Interview time slots are limited. The earlier you can book, the more options you will have.
Please access the system as follows:
How to Book
Click HERE to go to the PTO booking system.
Click “Obtain PIN/Password” and enter your email address. (This must be the email address previously supplied to QACI).
Your PIN will be emailed to you. The email you receive will include a link that can be clicked on to log straight into PTO, bypassing the login screen. Alternatively return to QACI’s website, Our School, Parent teacher communication tab and click “Login” and enter your Surname/login and PIN/Password as provided in the email.
Full instructions are provided to you after log in. Please note the following points:
When you log on, the system displays only your own child/children. You would only use one parent to log in unless parents are separated and require individual interviews, please contact email@example.com to inform us that you need two interview times for the same teacher/student.
You will only see time slots which are available at the time you are using the system. As time slots are booked they are no longer displayed as available.
Other parents may be making bookings at the same time that you are using the system. It is possible, though unlikely, that a timeslot is displayed to you as available, but is then booked by another parent shortly afterwards. If you then attempt to book this timeslot it will not be available and a message will be displayed to indicate this.
When you have made all the bookings you require, you can print a report of your bookings in time order.
If you encounter any problems using PTO please notify Client Services, preferably via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or on 3552 9333 from 8.00am to 2:30pm.
Bookings are made via PTOnline.
