Virtual Parent University session to focus on non-academic supports

The Houston Independent School District will host its next virtual Parent University workshop from 6 to 8 p.m. on Tuesday, March 9. (Please note: this was rescheduled from February due to inclement weather.)

The theme of the fourth session will be “Non-Academic Supports Offered in HISD.” The workshop will begin with a general session followed by virtual breakout sessions that will include information on district programs, parent engagement, and community resources.  

The final virtual Parent University for the 2020-21 school year will take place in April: 

  • Tuesday, April 20 – Supporting Your Child’s Social and Emotional Needs

This districtwide initiative was launched in September 2018 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.   

All HISD families are encouraged to attend. A variety of community resources will be available for parents. Registration and more information for each event can be found at
