Parent Academy

  • The goal of Parent Academy is to provide parents the tools and skills to build capacity and confidence to support students academically, socially, and emotionally. All classes are free and offered in convenient locations to meet parents where they are. Parent Academy focuses on three key pillars: Student Achievement, Personal and Professional Development, and Parenting/Advocacy. 

  • Parent Training

    Attend an upcoming parent training session to learn how to best support your child at home as they participate in Online Learning for the new school year. We are providing both Face to Face and Online Parent Training Sessions. 

    By the end of the session, parents will be able to:

    • Assist with logging students on, basic navigation, device setup and use such as camera and keyboard, and basic internet troubleshooting
    • Navigate to the learning platforms that students will use and parent portal: Clever, Teams, Schoology and PowerSchool.
