Online Conference Booking

Step by step instructions on how to book online for the Parent/Student/Teacher Conferences.

At Bow Valley High School, Parent-Teacher Conferences are a key part of our communication strategy regarding your child’s progress. Please plan on booking and attending a parent-teacher conference with the applicable teacher(s) for each child you have attending the school.

The Bow Valley High School Conference Manager allows you, as a parent, to use the Internet to check our teachers’ conference schedules and book appointments quickly and easy.

The first time you use the Bow Valley High School Conference Manager you will be required to register for a new account, which only takes a minute or two. You can continue to use this same account for the duration of the time you have children in the school, so please record your password where you can reference it later.

You may want to register right away as a scheduling reminder email is sent to parents who are registered just as the scheduling commences. If your email program flags automated emails as junk mail, you may want to put “appointments@schoolsoft.ca” in your email address book.

Steps to registering and booking conferences:

  1. Go to our school’s School Soft URL: https://bowvalley.schoolsoft.ca (note there is no ‘www’ in the URL).  You should check and confirm that your Internet Browser software meets the following requirements:
    • Internet Explorer version 6+ (version 7 or 8 is preferred) or Firefox 3+ or Safari 4+, Chrome 4+

    You can find the browser version by clicking the HELP menu item in your browser and select the “ABOUT…” option. If you are using a Mac, click the application name menu item (e.g. SAFARI, and then select the “ABOUT” option. Although infrequent, most issues parents experience scheduling are caused by using an old version of an Internet Browser that does not meet the functional and security requirements of the application.
  2. Register for a parent account. To register click the REGISTER NOW button and complete the registration page. Once registered you will be able to log in to the Conference Manager right away. An email will also be sent to the address you specified that restates your user name and password. This is a good email to retain, as you will be able to use this when booking future rounds of Parent-Teacher Conferences. If you forget your password you cannot retrieve the password, however you can reset it using the FORGOT PASSWORD link under the login button.
  3. Once registered you can log in to the Conference Manager any time using the URL indicated in Item 1 above.
