CUSD Parent University Nights
Parent University classes will be held in February at schools throughout CUSD. The classes will be offered at two levels, elementary math and middle school math. The sessions will last for 1.5 hours and will be held at middle schools. Parents are welcome to attend any session that works with their schedule.
The purpose of Parent University is to provide parents a hands-on experience with how math is being taught to meet the new standards and will provide parents resources for assisting their children at home with math.
