Parent University Online

Welcome to Parent University Online

Hello and Welcome to Parent University online.  This spring we are creating video versions of the in-person classes we had planned for parents, caregivers, parent organization members and TPS’ nonprofit school partners. Each class ranges from 30-45 minutes long and contains an evaluation at the end to help us collect feedback about the content.

We will continue to bring you quality content online until we can be back together in person. In the meantime, stay safe and well. As we move toward next school year, we would appreciate any suggestions you have for future classes. Please contact, Erin at [email protected] with your suggestions. Thank you!
