Parents are our students’ first teachers and advocates! Durham Public Schools recognized the importance of this very special relationship and established Family Academy – a service to help answer parents’ and caregivers’ questions on topics that impact their children’s lives, including academic support, social and emotional learning, parent advocacy, and more. Family Academy also collaborates with committed community partners to deliver meaningful programs and services to meet the diverse needs of our families. Together…we offer a variety of classes and resources that support the success of each and every child. The research is clear…when there is a high level of parent engagement children will have:
- higher grades,
- improved test scores and graduation rates,
- improved student attendance, and
- decreased discipline problems.
Family Academy offers Signature Classes developed by teachers, specialists, parents, and community leaders to schools and families.
