Parent Engagement/Training

Parent engagement in the school environment is defined as parents and school staff working together to support and improve the learning, development, and health of children and adolescents. Research shows that parent involvement is closely linked to better student behavior, higher academic achievement and enhanced social skills.  In lieu of Tracy Unified School District Goal#1: “Prepare all students to be well-rounded individuals with the knowledge and skills to pursue their college and/or career goals” and using the whole-child approach, the department of Prevention Services offers The Parent Project, an evidence-based 10-week parent-training program for parents raising difficult or out of control children.  This is a free training and upon completion, parents/guardians receive a certificate indicating their commitment to be involved in improving their students’ overall behavior, educational outcome and a healthy positive future.
