STRENGTHENING PARENT CAPACITY TO SUPPORT STUDENT LEARNING

Each family center welcomes families by text, Facebook, district website and through other social media as well as in person.
Parents are informed of activities at the family centers using a phone application called “Parent Link”, Facebook and the TUSD website. Parents will be invited to share their ideas for communicating and workshop topics.
