Parent University was developed in response to the need for programming to address the social and emotional needs of students in District 303. We continue to strive to provide information on topics that are relevant, timely, and beneficial for all parents and guardians.
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.
The Parent University committee, made up of parents with children at all grade levels, teachers, school administrators, and district administrators, collaborate to develop programming that is timely, meaningful, and easily accessible. The parent survey used in the spring of 2019 provided useful feedback the committee has used in its planning. Due to COVID-19, some programs were canceled in early 2020, but we have planned virtual programs for the 2020-2021 school year that focus on technology, anxiety in teenagers, drug prevention, and supporting the SEL needs of gifted students.
2021-2022 Parent University offerings coming soon!
