Duval County Public Schools Parent Academy

Parent Academy

Duval County Public Schools (DCPS) has launched a Parent Academy to promote parental involvement and enhance student achievement. Academy classes will be offered in schools, libraries, community centers, government offices, and faith-based institutions. The Parent Academy will focus on three primary tracks: Student AchievementParenting and Advocacy, and Personal and Individual Growth.

  • Student Achievement:  Workshops and activities provide parents and caregivers with tools to promote students' academic achievement and navigate the school system.
  • Parenting & Advocacy:  Workshops and activities provide tools to more effectively enhance parenting, advocacy and leadership skills.
  • Personal & Individual Growth:  Workshops and activities provide tools for supporting the personal and professional growth of parents and caregivers.

Parent Academy courses are also offered on two levels:

FOUNDATION:  Courses which address basic core concepts.

ADVANCED:  Courses which explore concepts at a more in-depth level.

Academic advocacy and involvement by parents provide a foundation for success. Researchers have noted that family involvement and interest in a child’s education produces positive effects throughout the years, including the following:

  • Increased achievement in math, reading, and science;
  • Better attendance and homework completion;
  • Participation in advance learning classes, additional earned credits & improved graduation rates;
  • Early post secondary education and career planning; and
  • Social and behavioral gains
