Parent Learning Opportunities
April 23, 2020
As a parent, it is important to take an active role in your child's education. One suggestion is to to participate in parent classes.
Parent classes and support groups help parents and guardians develop important tools, new skills, and the confidence to become strong advocates and support their students academically, socially, and emotionally.
Parent Academy focuses on three key pillars: Student Achievement, Personal and Professional Development, and Parenting/Advocacy. Classes are free and offered in convenient locations around Detroit. Note: Parents do not need to have a child in a DPSCD school to participate!
Detroit Parent Network (DPN) offers courses where parents can earn certificates in topics like Parent Leadership and Parent Advocacy. DPN also offers support groups targeting moms, dads, grandparents, and others.
