What is Parent University?
The Burlington School District Parent University is an innovative educational model that promotes learning for parents of BSD students through a holistic multi-generational approach, taking families’ challenges, needs, and educational goals into account for the maximum impact on student success. The program teaches valuable skills and knowledge that benefit both families and children (i.e. parenting skills, budgeting, First Aid CPR certification etc.) and promotes an inclusive school culture, helping participants to feel welcome and valued in their school community.
