What is Parent University?

  • Why be involved? Research shows that family engagement is one of the most powerful predictors of children’s development, educational attainment, and success in school and life. Families who are engaged in their children’s learning have the opportunity to strengthen home-school partnerships to support the whole child.

    Parent University is a collaborative community effort led by Gilbert Public Schools to help families develop knowledge and skills to be proactive in their children’s learning and development. GPS partners with community organizations to offer learning opportunities throughout the district to help empower families to increase engagement with the schools to work together to educate and support all children. Most activities are provided at no cost.

    Parent University strives to empower families to raise children to be safe and successful in school and in life. Workshops and events are held in schools around the district and include topics such as:

    • Children’s social-emotional development
    • Mental health and wellness/suicide awareness and prevention
    • Positive discipline and guidance
    • Cybersafety and responsible technology use
    • Special Education topics
    • Drug, alcohol, tobacco, and vaping awareness and prevention
    • Preparation for kindergarten, junior high, high school, and career
    • And more!

    Please note: Childcare is not provided, and children are not permitted to attend unless specified. 

    Join us! Any adult is welcome to register – Gilbert residency not required.
