Morgan enrolled in the series last school year. 尽管我是SPS的毕业生, when it came time for her child to begin 1st grade, Morgan was looking for extra support and guidance on how to navigate the years ahead.

“One of the things that was special is the class was built around what participants wanted to learn,”她说。. “I’ve never had a college class that did that. It showed they valued what the families wanted to learn.”

For Morgan, what the class proved was invaluable. The discussions help families learn how to navigate the multitude of resources available for 学生.

“I know there are so many resources out there — but if you don’t know how to find them you miss out,”她说。.

The class also provided a supportive community where she met other parents. It was a reminder that she didn’t have to ‘go it alone.’

Since completing the series, Morgan’s engagement with her school community has continued to flourish. She shares tips with other families about school and district resources and is contributing her time and skills as a regular school volunteer. Morgan has taken a step further by joining the PTSA, amplifying her impact on the broader school community.

Last spring, Jasmine enrolled in the 家庭连接器大学 series. She was motivated by her desire to understand the larger school district system after transferring her child from a small private school to an SPS elementary.

“对我来说, the class was an opportunity to learn and feel empowered not only as a parent but also as a voter and an advocate for 学生,”她说。.

“The sessions that covered critical topics that can be hot button issues were key for me,贾思敏说. “It was helpful to learn about the structure and decision-making processes of student supports such as special education.”

Jasmine highlighted the benefits of learning about these topics directly from the 工作人员 providing support and services, rather than rely just on articles and reports from secondary news sources.

Recognizing the long list of responsibilities of parenting, Jasmine also found the flexible class schedule to be a game-changer. She was able to attend some classes asynchronously, 把它们安排在她繁忙的日程中, and joining other sessions at the regularly scheduled time.

Each 家庭连接器大学 Series is Unique

家庭连接器大学 participants learn specific techniques and new skills. The topics vary from quarter to quarter because each class cohort discusses what topics will be most helpful for them over the course of the 10 weeks.

Recent topics offered during the class include:

  • Navigating the school system and advocating for your child
  • 保持孩子在学校的积极性
  • 谈论残疾
  • 和你的孩子谈论种族主义

“The series provides a great overview of district and school functions,” said Asosa Sailiai. “Each class provides an opportunity for families to get more in-depth information on specific topics of their interest.”
