"Parent University" going well - Oct 22nd, 2013 - Local
Grand Rapids Public School board members got an update at their meeting Monday, on the new parent outreach program and so far it seems to be successful.
The idea behind Parent University, is that parents who are more involved in their children's lives are able to better encourage their children to perform well in school and be more successful. The free courses range from teaching about effective parenting to health and wellness. so far, the program has enrolled 113 parents in 280 courses.
The first round of classes ends in December. Registration for the winter quarter of Parent University classes starts Nov. 29.
