DPSCD's Family and Community Engagement team will continue the Parent Academy courses virtually during the COVID-19 pandemic.

    Families can still take advantage of the beneficial content by dialing in over the phone or joining courses online. We will offer fun and interactive content for every family. From cooking to coding, the spring catalog is filled with activities to continue supporting DPSCD's families. Take a look at what we are offering this fall. We hope to see you virtually, at an upcoming class, or distance learning training.
