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 parent involvement experiences that will assist and empower parents in helping their child(ren) reach their fullest academic, social, and emotional potential.
