Parent Engagement

  • New Haven Public Schools encourages all parents to get involved in their children's education. This page provides information about ways to get involved. Talk to your school for information about how to get involved with your school's PTO or PTA.

    Title 1 Parent Meetings
    Title I is a federal program that provides disadvantaged students with tutoring and supplemental services in math, reading and sometimes other subjects. The program also offers parenting and life skill workshops for parents, as well as assistance in navigating the public school system.
    Parent University New Haven
    We are delighted to present Parent University for Spring 2019. The goal of New Haven Public Schools’ Parent University is to help increase parent involvement in the schools and empower parents to engage with schools so that children are successful in school, and in life. Research has shown that parents can increase a child's academic success through their involvement with schools and communities. Parental involvement improves student morale, attitudes, and academic achievement across all subject areas.
    New Haven Parent University will provide workshops that offer tools and strategies that help parents support children academically and socially, empower parents to take ownership in children’s education, and strengthen parent’s ability to advocate for children and schools.
    Workshop topics range from Helping Your Young Child Learn through Play to Surviving Adolescence.
    Two major Parent University events will be held during Spring and Fall, and then a series of workshops will be held throughout the year in schools, public libraries, houses of worship, businesses and other community locations convenient for our parents to participate.
    NHPS Parent University’s first major event of 2019 will be held on Saturday April 27, 9am to 1pm at Metropolitan Business Academy, 115 Water Street, New Haven CT 06511.
