Welcome to Parent U!

Parent U is a new program designed especially for parents of children from birth through high school.  Our mission is to help parents learn important information from experts who can provide guidance and resources they need to keep their children safe, healthy and engaged in school.

 

We're here to help!

Parent U videos allow parents to view presentations that have been pre-recorded and published on the Internet.  A computer with an Internet connection gives parents the ability to watch the videos at their own convenience.  Our videos:

  • Guide parents through their child's developmental years;
  • Answer parents' questions about their children's school experiences; and
  • Support parents as they seek ways to keep their children safe, healthy and in school.
