What is the Parent Academy For Student Success?
The Parent Academy is a free, year-round, parent engagement initiative of East Rutherford Public Schools, helping parents become full partners in their children’s education. The goal is to provide educational excellence for all of our children by informing parents about the importance of their roles, uniting families and schools, and giving parents a fuller sense of their rights, responsibilities, and the educational opportunities available. Free workshops are offered monthly for parents. In addition, parents will have the opportunity to participate in workshops that are aligned with their needs and are conveniently located near their home and workplace.
