Parent University

Knowledge and Skills for Stronger Families.

Parent University offered a variety of opportunities, including courses, training, and family events to help parents ensure their children’s success.

The concept of Parent University launched in the 1980s to provide greater opportunities for parent involvement in Kindergarten through 12th-grade schools. Parent Universities have become a promising nationwide program to help families develop knowledge and skills that enable them to be proactive in their children’s learning and growth.


Parent University with Partners in Education & Toledo Public Schools

Parent University was launched in 2015 by Toledo Public Schools through Partners In Education. Our goal was to inform and empower parents and help schools and the community form stronger bonds that lead to student success and happy, healthy families. Free classes, resources, events and workshops for parents continued through the 2020 school year.

In the fall of 2020 , Parent University officially became part of Toledo Public Schools and is no longer facilitated through Partners in Education.
