Lancaster ISD Parent University kicks off
LANCASTER - On Thursday, Oct. 28, Lancaster Independent School District officially kicks off its 2010-2011 Parent University with a series of workshops.
This year’s theme is Helping Our Parents Engage (H.O.P.E) which will highlight ways for parents to be engaged in their child’s academic life throughout the year.
The Thursday, Oct. 28 workshop entitled "Parents as Partners in Our Success," takes place from 7 - 9 p.m. in the Board Room at the Administration Building, 422 S. Centre Ave.
Topics for future workshops will be discussed along with information for parents on how to tell if their child is being bullied. Parents are encouraged to provide input on upcoming topics.
The LISD Parent University hopes to reach at least 2,000 or more parents this year and is part of a district-wide initiative for improving student achievement and district communications by engaging parents in the education of their students.
The courses, which are free, are open to parents of LISD students, staff and community members. Child care and refreshments are provided.
