NORTHSIDE Parenting Program: How to Navigate the School System (For Adults ONLY)

public schoolYou asked and we delivered! We get many parents who come to Northside Branch Library curious about how the public school system works. Most importantly who makes decisions on curriculum, teachers assigned to students, and what makes one school better than another. 

Learn how to get involved within your child’s school and how to navigate the school system. Discover how to make an impact and become part of the decision making process, whether it be with the school or school district. This session is geared towards parent(s):

-Who did not attend elementary, middle or high schools in the US. 
- Who want to get involved with the inter workings of school through PTA (Parent-Teacher Associations), site councils, and the District Office.
- Are curious about navigating decisions at the district.
- Proper protocol and effectiveness in dealing with complaints about a school or a teacher.  

For Adults ONLY.
