Parent Engagement Project begins in December


The Center for Urban and Higher Education (CUHE) has helped to make an impact on Akron Public Schools through a generous grant.

The Parent Engagement Project will run for one night a month for six months, starting in December. Parents of elementary, middle and high school students will learn strategies to:

  • Handle conflict and build productive, positive relationships with teachers and school personnel,
  • Understand the latest academic standards and create action plans,
  • Increase their involvement in school activities, and
  • Access and use home and community resources to promote student success.

Many thanks to the CUHE for helping to make a difference in our community!
