Parent University

On Aug. 13, 2020, District 97 held its first Virtual Parent University to provide families with information, tips and tools to support students with remote learning this fall. Recordings of these sessions are linked below.

We are planning to hold additional learning sessions, including another Parent University, throughout the school year. Our district and school leaders will keep you informed of these opportunities as they arise.

Thank you for your ongoing support and partnership as we work to provide our students high-quality, engaging remote learning experiences this fall!

UPDATE (SEPT. 18, 2020): This page has been updated to include Spanish and Arabic translations of the Parent University presentations.
