BH-BL Parent University is a community collaboration aimed at helping parents become full partners in their children’s education.

BH-BL partners with community agencies and organizations to offer free, informative workshops featuring experts in childhood development to equip families with new or additional skills, knowledge, resources and confidence. The goal of Parent University is to increase parent involvement in the schools and empower parents to raise children who are successful in school, and in life.

Parent University covers a broad range of wellness-focused topics, from methods to support a child's physical and mental well-being to tackling a teen's challenging behaviors.

The workshops are facilitated by community professionals, district staff, parents and students. They are presented in many formats including book studies, forums, guest presentations and educational film discussions. No registration is required for programs unless otherwise specified.

Why should I get involved?

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. Even if you are not a parent, we encourage you to become involved within Parent University.  No matter what role you play in the school community, Parent University encourages involvement and participation in the education of our community’s students.

Do you have a suggestion for a Parent University workshop?

If you have a topic that you think could be developed into a Parent University workshop, please reach out to BH-BL Assistant Superintendent for Curriculum and Instruction Maryellen Symer at
