Research has shown that parents can increase a child's academic success through their involvement with schools and communities.  Parental involvement improves student morale, attitudes, and academic achievement across all subject areas. The overarching goal of District 30’s Parent University is to create meaningful experiences that will assist and empower parents in helping their child(ren) reach their fullest academic, social, and emotional potential.

 DISTRICT-WIDE ANNUAL PARENT FAIR: “A Taste of a Service”
Thursday, November 15, 2018   6:30-8:00pm      Location: Shaw Avenue

 

Parents will become familiar with a wide array of inclusive services and supports offered within District 30 for ALL students in need. Interactive booths will be available for parents to learn about general education academic remedial services (AIS math providers, RTI Reading Teachers), enrichment opportunities (Enrichment Teachers), special education services (special education teachers, speech therapists, OT/PT therapists), social-emotional supports (school psychologists), health supports/ services (school nurse), and ELL supports/services (for families that speak a different language). Both parents and students will be actively engaged in hands-on activities that they can use at home. Translators will be available upon request as well as available support staff to supervise younger children while parents are meeting with school personnel. PTAs from each of the schools will be present to greet families and answer any questions they may have. Finally, incoming kindergarten students and families of District 30 are invited to this event in an effort to support a smooth and effective transition into the school environment.  Overall, this night is meant to be fun and engaging for all families to learn about the wealth of resources available and connect with staff, administration, and fellow parents to address any questions or  concerns.
