What are Parent Centers?

The Parent Centers are a part of the Strong Community Schools Strategy and are located at four Community High Schools (Bennett, East, Lafayette, and South Park). The Parent Centers provide families with education, resources and programming that build parents’ knowledge, skills and networks for supporting and partnering in their child’s education. To achieve this goal a variety of activities, services, and learning sessions are offered daily.
