There will also be businesses and organizations that provide a variety of services and resources for families to explain what they do. 

“We really want to provide them with education and information that really meets their needs and so while this is a one-day opportunity, because we’ll have sessions in the morning and in the evening, we want this to kind of be a continuing conversation to see the feedback that we get will also provide us with additional information on how we can follow up,” said the district’s superintendent, Dr. Sherry Grate. 

Parent University will be held at Westfield High School. 

There will be two sessions. One in the morning from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. and one in the evening from 6 am to 8 am.
