How it works:
Parent University course categories:
Every parent wants their child to succeed. District leaders should adopt this idea as the mission of a Parent University program, and assume that by teaching parents, they can help their children to succeed.
Encourage parents to teach classes and take on school leadership roles – but offer support so they gain confidence in their leadership abilities.
Go broad when seeking community partners, so your district can address many needs. Look beyond education-focused organizations.
