Parent UniversityParent University is a district-led initiative, aimed at equipping parents and families in the district with information and resources relevant to the social, emotional, and academic well-being of their students. 

This district-wide initiative, in partnership with First Things First and Urban League of Greater Chattanooga, seeks to empower parents through a series of sessions held throughout our five Learning Communities.

The ultimate goal of this program is to help parents become full partners in their child's education.

Session 4: Parents as Advocates
