The motto of the new Parent University is “FOR parents BY parents.”

Toledo Public Schools has partnered with Partners In Education to coordinate FREE classes for area parents and guardians on a variety of topics that will help them raise happy, successful children.  The initiative was kicked off with registration and a news conference at Grove Patterson Academy, 3020 Marvin Ave., on Tuesday, August 11.

The concept is simple: Parent University will bring together community resources and leaders to offer FREE classes on a variety of topics throughout the school year.  Parent groups have decided what classes should be offered and will even lead some of the classes that start this fall.  Topics include Healthy Cooking, Standardized Testing, Preparing for College and Career, Parent Leadership and more.

Childcare and transportation will always be provided for these 1-2 hour classes held across Toledo. 

Registration for all classes is now open. Click here to sign up:
