About the Parent Resource Centers:
DPS’ eight parent resource centers are comfortable community gathering spaces equipped with multiple computers, phones, sofas, small libraries, play areas for children, check-out academic tool kits and more.
They offer expert-led workshops, child care, GED support, job training, support groups, MEAP assistance, book clubs, sessions on Title I programs, college information, coffee talks on parent engagement and other offerings.
The centers are designed to involve, connect and empower parents to help children reach academic success and serve as a hub for training and resources. Light refreshments are provided at each center.
