What is Parent University?
  • Parent University is an opportunity for parents/ caregivers to sharpen skills as their children matriculate through CMSD.
  • Parent University will provide parent/ caregivers with information about their vital responsibility in shaping their children's lives.  
  • Sessions will focus on child development, what children are learning in schools, advocacy, parent leadership and effective parenting skills.
Our Goal
To educate and empower parents as partners, advocates and lifelong learners, as well as teachers who can contribute to their child's academic success through attending educational courses and participating in leadership opportunities.
What will parents learn?

  • Parents as Teachers 
  • Parents as Advocates
