What is Parent University?
Parent University is a community collaborative to help parents become full partners in their children’s education. Stafford MSD partners with community agencies and organizations to offer free courses, training sessions, family events and activities that will equip families with new or additional skills, knowledge, resources and confidence as they support their students.
What is the Goal of Parent University?
The goal of Parent University is to increase parent involvement in our schools and empower parents to raise children who are successful in school, and in life. Workshops cover a wide range of topics, including: Early Literacy, Preparation for State Assessments, Preparing for Kindergarten, Tips for Second Language Acquisition, College/Career Readiness, and many more.
Why Be Involved?
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 and participate in Parent University.
