Welcome to Parent University!

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!
