Training for Parents

  • Creating a strong connection between school and home is essential to our community’s children finding success in their educational experience. As a part of the strategic planning process and the two-way communications with parents and guardians during that process, the district identified the need to provide training materials to help parents access pertinent educational materials. Below are some training materials for families.
    It is our hope that these tools will assist you in navigating the website effectively to find and leverage the online curriculum, textbooks, and resources, to support your child in their learning journey. Should you need assistance, please reach out to the front office staff at your child’s school of attendance.
