• Parent University is a fun and engaging program that is meant to bring the community together so we can all learn new strategies and ideas to ensure that our children are ready to succeed as students in Fort Worth ISD and college and career. The program also focuses on social emotional skills that will ensure our students are prepared to communicate clearly and practice respect with people they meet on a daily basis.

    This program is not just for struggling parents; we are all trying to be the best parents we can be each day. This program is meant for all parents because we all have strengths, and we can all grow together in efforts to support all families.

    Participants will not have to complete extensive assignments outside of the time allotted for the classes. You will not have homework and big projects. We know our families are busy and the goal is to ensure the process is smooth and does not prevent parents from completing other daily duties that are a priority.
