Parent University is back in session

 ALBANY, N.Y. (Feb. 2, 2017) – More than two dozen families helped kick off the winter and spring sessions of the City School District of Albany’s Parent University at William S. Hackett Middle School on Wednesday evening.

 

Knowing that parental involvement is one of the most critical factors to student success, particularly at the middle-school level, the district launched Parent University in the spring of 2015. The district holds monthly Parent University programs at Hackett, Myers and West Hill middle schools and North Albany Academy in the fall and again in the winter and spring.

 

Parent University programs address a wide variety of topics designed to help keep students and families engaged, involved and informed.

 

February’s presentations at each middle school provide information to help families prepare for this spring’s New York State math and ELA testing for students in grades 3-8.

 

The district also is expanding Parent University this winter and spring courtesy of a My Brother’s Keeper Challenge Grant.

 

The new programming will benefit families from Albany High School and the district’s five Priority elementary schools – Arbor Hill Elementary School, Giffen Memorial Elementary School, Philip Schuyler Achievement Academy, Sheridan Preparatory Academy and Thomas O’Brien Academy of Science and Technology (TOAST).

The mission of the City School District of Albany is to educate and prepare all students for college and career, citizenship and life, in partnership with our diverse community. The district serves more than 9,600 students in 17 elementary, middle and high schools. In addition to neighborhood schools, the district includes several magnet schools and programs, as well as other innovative academic opportunities for students, including four themed academies at Albany High School.
