Parent UniversityProgram for Parents Helps Students
Reach New Success Levels

Helping parents improve their children’s success at school is one of the main goals of a free program sponsored by Mesquite Independent School District. Parent University offers informational sessions aimed at parents and guardians of MISD students.

“Parent University will provide interactive sessions designed to assist parents with improving student motivation and understanding requirements as they transition to middle school and high school,” said Dr. Mona Lincoln, Mesquite ISD’s Administrative Officer for Executive Services and organizer of Parent University. Parents will learn how to plan and monitor secondary requirements.

“In general, research findings over the last 30 years have consistently shown home involvement in schooling has a positive impact on youngster’s attitudes, aspirations and achievements,” said Lincoln. “Enhancing connections between home and school is vital for student success,” she said.
