School can be complicated, not just for students but for their parents as well. Understanding grading systems, navigating academic standards and assessment tests, and assisting with homework can be a challenge for any parent.
To further support parents’ commitment to their children’s success, we’re reaching out to families to provide PATH (Partnership in Achievement and Transition to Higher Learning) - a unique, interactive class designed to help families understand how public schools work and learn how they can best support their children. Engaging parents is the goal of the institute, and ultimately district leaders expect the effort will lead to increased student achievement and help prepare students for college.
Start-up funding for PATH was provided through a grant from the East Metro Integration District, a collaborative effort that fosters voluntary integration among St. Paul Public Schools and nine suburban school districts in the eastern Twin Cities metro area.
More than 50 parents graduated from PATH in its first year.
