The goal of Parent University is to increase parent involvement in the schools and empower parents to raise children who are successful in school, and in life. Workshops will be held in schools, public libraries, YMCAs, houses of worship, businesses and other community locations. Workshop range from topics like Helping Your Child Prepare for the End-of-Grade and End-of-Course Tests, to Preparing for Kindergarten, Middle and High School, to Surviving Adolescence. More than 70 course topics are available for families.
Research has shown that parents can increase a child's academic success through their involvement with schools and communities. Parental involvement improves student morale, attitudes, and academic achievement across all subject areas. Even if you are not a parent, we encourage you to become involved within Parent University. Volunteer opportunities are available. Please contact Kimberley Brown-Flint, Director of Special Education at 610-522-4300 ext. 5322.
