Final Parent University session scheduled for March 28  

HISD will host its fifth and final Parent University workshop from 5:30 to 8 p.m. on Thursday, March 28 at four locations throughout the district: Furr, Northside, Madison and Westside high schools. 

The theme for the session will be “Getting Your Child Ready for College and Careers.” The workshop will begin with a dinner and resource fair and will include information on district programs, parent engagement, community resources, and how parents can become active partners in the successful education of their children.

This district-wide initiative was launched last September with a mission of connecting HISD parents and children to resources that support successful academic careers, as well as safe and healthy environments at home and at school. 

Parents can look up locations and select the most convenient one to attend. Registration is available at

Free dinner, interpretation services, and childcare will be provided.
