Parent University                


What is Parent University?

Why be involved? Research shows that family engagement is one of the most powerful predictors of children development, educational attainment and success in school and life. Families who are engaged in their children's learning have the opportunity to strengthen home-school partnerships to support the whole child.

Parent University is a series of educational opportunities that will be provided by the Cherokee County School District Department of Special Education throughout the school year free of charge to all participants. Information about helping students with disabilities succeed academically and socially will be provided by the CCSD staff, community professionals, and invited speakers. Parent University is designed for private school teachers, parents who are homeschooling their children, and parents of students with disabilities; however, anyone is welcome to attend.  Parent University strives to empower families to raise children to be safe and successful in school and in life. 

Parent University presentations will consist of various separate sessions/topics.
