Parent University

What is Parent University?


Parent University was developed in response to the need for programming to address the social and emotional needs of students in District 303. The content has evolved over the years to include additional topics on issues facing today's youth.

District 303 regards parent engagement as fundamental to the success of our students both inside and outside of the classroom. Parent University is designed to create partnerships between school and home, and provide a place where parents and staff members can learn together.

Join us for the 2017-2018 Parent University programs aimed at engaging local experts, parents and school staff in conversations about ways in which we can collectively strengthen our communities. Programs are free and open to the public.

In addition to programming at District 303 sites, Centennial Counseling will lead monthly informational sessions. Please scroll down to see more details about the sessions being offered by Centennial Counseling. 

We will post new information regarding Parent University Offerings as it becomes available for the 2018-19 school year.
