Parent University

What does Parent University Provide?

Douglas County School District's Parent University program provides training, information, and resources to parents and caregivers that will aid parents in their essential responsibility for influencing children's lives. By partnering with internal district departments, academic institutions, community organizations and other agencies to equip families with additional skills, knowledge, and resources, Parent University will support and empower parents to become leaders and advocates for their child's learning.

Classes offered through Parent University provide resources and training in areas such as safety, life skills, academic development and financial literacy, and will provide families with tools that they can use to encourage their children to become successful while fostering school and community improvement.

Parent University is designed to:

  • Increase parental involvement and participation in schools,

  • Empower parents to become effective advocates for their children,

  • Strengthen home-school-community partnerships, 

  • Allow parents an opportunity to network with professionals and other parents,

  • Help parents develop the skills needed to implement positive parenting practices, and

  • Equip parents with the knowledge and awareness of resources available to them.
