Academic Support Services

  • The goal of Parent Academy is to provide parents the tools and skills to build capacity and confidence to support students academically, socially, and emotionally. All classes are free and offered in convenient locations to meet parents where they are. Parent Academy focuses on three key pillars: Student Achievement, Personal and Professional Development, and Parenting/Advocacy. 

    Eureka Math for Families series was developed to assist parents who now have an enhanced role to support their children’s education. Since Eureka Math is relatively new and different than many of our parents were taught, the Office of Mathematics wants to increase parents’ conceptual understanding of grade-level mathematics so they can better support their children’s learning of key mathematical content. Parents will be invited to participate in 9, 30-minute virtual sessions led by Master Teacher Facilitators throughout the year. The goal is for parents to work with Master Teachers to learn key strategies and models in Eureka Math and how they can help their child at home. Parents will also have an opportunity to check in with the Master Teacher Trainers, ask questions, and share success during the 9 virtual Office Hours that follow each session.
