Updated June 03, 2022

A parent sign-in sheet is a form that teachers can use to record the attendance of a parent-teacher conference or other similar event. It is important to document a parent’s attendance using a sign-in sheet as it provides proof of the parent’s knowledge and understanding of the critical information concerning their child’s progress in the class, which, in some cases, can be vital to their development and education.

How to Write

Step 1 – Download the Form

You can download the form by selecting one of the following links: PDF, ODT, Word. Download the file in your format of preference before proceeding onto the steps below.

Step 2 – Initial Information

Start by writing the date at the top of the page. Since you will most likely be aware of which parents are arriving at specific times throughout the event, you can take a moment before the event begins to record the student’s name in the first available column. Alternatively, if the event is an open house, the students’ names can be recorded in the order of appearance.

Step 3 – Parent’s Name/Signature

The parent’s name should be written in the second available column. Once the conference has finished and the parent is fully aware of the details pertaining to their child’s progress, have the parent provide their signature in the remaining column to confirm that they were in fact in attendance and that they understand the information relayed in the meeting.

Step 4 – Presenting the Document

For scheduled parent-teacher events, the form should be handled by the teacher/instructor and presented to the parent during the meeting. An open house event may permit the form to be left close to the entrance or distributed to parents throughout the event. Print as many copies as required; as stated above, you will most likely be aware of the number of people expected.
