Our goal is to educate, equip, and partner with our students and their support systems by offering a wide variety of relevant and effective programs and resources that will make a positive impact on the individual and the community. By building strong parent-learning communities we will increase student achievement in our schools and empower parents to raise children who are successful in school and in life.
Monthly workshops and classes will be offered to parents free of charge. Topics for the workshops will vary each month and will be based on a parent needs survey.
Each center is staffed with a full-time bilingual Family Involvement Liaison Para. Each center offers some classes in Spanish. Translation for classes in English is provided by the staff.
