OCPS Parent Academy 

Research shows that students achieve more when parents are involved in their child’s education. In order to provide families with a vehicle to empower them and their children. The OCPS Parent Academy is an educational program designed to enhance student achievement through the support of community and family engagement. The program’s purpose is to strengthen and build capacity of families.

Workshops are conducted by experts from the district, school-based personnel and community partners. Parents will receive an array of support for their children and themselves.
