About Parent University
RSVP for our upcoming event!
 
Parent University:
Peoria Public Schools utilizes Parent University to meet the needs of our students, families, and community. The monthly Parent University events provide the opportunity for families to get a wide variety of resources under the umbrella of five topics:
  • Curriculum
  • Assisting Students in the Classroom/School
  • Health and Fitness
  • Parenting
  • Community Resources
The reach of Parent University continues to expand with more families attending and more workshops offered each month. During the 2014-2015 school year, Parent University began offering free babysitting services with the help of Manual Academy's childcare students, as well as offering additional activities for students while parents attend Parent University workshops. In March 2015, Parent University began offering select workshops in Spanish, and also provided free haircuts and nail painting during the event by Woodruff Career and Technical Center cosmetology and barbering students. During the 2016-2017 school year, Peoria Public Schools is working to build the bonds of our families and show you exciting things to be involved in and see in and around Peoria! Each Parent University event will be held at a site in our community.
 
This free district wide initiative is open to all parents and families.

 

The 2016-2017 Parent University Calendar is now available!
See below for dates, locations, times, course offerings and to RSVP! This year, we will be holding many events off-site from our District and out in the community. This "community tour" will allow our parents and students to learn about valuable resources and offerings within our City.
