Banner for Parent University—Free Courses, Resources, and Events for NYC Families

It’s time to go to the University.

Throughout the 2020–21 school year, Parent University, the DOE’s free online learning and empowerment platform, has provided outstanding digital resources and opportunities to NYC public school families across the five boroughs. From online workshops addressing stress reduction for parents/caregivers and coping with conflict at home, to career panels for middle and high school students, Parent University has helped City families take more of an active and collaborative role in their children’s education all year long.

With the end of the school year fast approaching, now is the perfect time to see what’s available for you and your family on Parent University. Anyone with an NYC Schools Account can access Parent University—once registered, parents, grandparents, and other family members or caregivers can register for everything the University has to offer, including workshops, live events, and training sessions regarding topics like:

  • Remote Learning and Technology
  • Financial Aid for College
  • Health and Wellness
  • Special Education
  • Multilingual Learners
  • Early Childhood Education
  • Parent Leadership
  • School Buildings and Operations
  • Adult and Continuing Education

Courses are also available in multiple languages, including Spanish, Chinese, and Arabic, and every day, we’re expanding our multilingual offerings to ensure that we reach every household.
