PARENT UNIVERSITY:

Are you wondering how to talk to your kids about race? Did you know that CRT can actually mean one or two trains of thought?

Regardless of your answer, or if you just want to find out more - then Parent University is for you!

"Our Parent University program offers a variety of topics each month, designed to keep you informed and up to date on current topics and issues in K-12 education and in your child's district," said Dr. Kim Martin, DEI Coordinator for Royal Oak Schools. "Realizing that there are many definitions of parent and guardians of our children, our unique Parent U program provides parents and guardians an opportunity to participate in their child's education."

The first session in October 2021 focused on how to talk to your kids about race.

"The district's goal to be inclusive, affording a safe and welcoming environment for all
students, includes collaborating with our entire community," said Mary Beth
Fitzpatrick, Superintendent. "We are excited to launch Parent U - an opportunity for all
of us to learn and grow together in Royal Oak Schools."
