Welcome to Dublin City Schools Parent University!

Welcome to Dublin City Schools Parent University!  201713153551561_image.png
In a large and dynamic school district such as Dublin City Schools, it can be difficult for parents to learn about all of the different academic and extracurricular opportunities available for their students. The goal of establishing a Dublin City Schools Parent University is to provide a vehicle that increases awareness regarding all of the programs the District has to offer, as well as some of the challenges and opportunities facing public education.  
 
Parent University will offer a year-round schedule of informational sessions focused on providing information parents need about Dublin City Schools, student well-being, District growth, finances, and much more!
 
Our kick-off event on Feb. 11 was extremely successful, with over 600 participants and over 60 sessions offered. A big thank you to everyone who helped with the event and to all of attendees!
 
Please watch the Parent University calendar for information and details about upcoming sessions and events.
