Parent University is Back on September 24
September 22, 2016 12:52 PM
Proviso Township High Schools District 209 will host its latest edition of Parent University from 9 a.m. to noon on Saturday, September 24, 2016, at Proviso East High School, Proviso West High School, and Proviso Mathematics and Science Academy.
Parents can participate at the school their student attends. With Parent University being held at each school, it is an opportunity for parents and students to learn more about the school and its staff and activities.
The activity is part of the district’s parent enrichment through Title I and the Board of Education’s goal of improving stakeholder involvement. This event is planned in collaboration with the District and the Strengthening Proviso Youth Committee.
The Parent University is a series of workshops designed to prepare parents to help their students in high school and beyond. The event also features resources that are available to parents for their children, and students from Proviso East High School, Proviso West High School, and Proviso Mathematics and Science Academy can earn one hour of community service credit for each of their parents who attend.
Planned workshops include:
- Learning about Financial Aid for College and Trade School
- Transitioning to High School
- Programs and Services for English Language Learners
- Programs and Services for Students with Disabilities
- Life Skills for Success in High School and Beyond
- And more!
The District is expecting a great turnout and encourages parents to spread the word. Parents of students who will be freshmen in the 2016-2017 school year are especially encouraged to attend. Students are also welcome to attend.
