Grand Prairie ISD (TX) held its first ParentCamp in late February. Over 65 people attended that including the Director of Counseling, the Director of Parent and Community Involvement, the Director of Health Services, Parent Liaisons, Parent Liaisons’ committee members, and parents and family members from several elementary campuses.

The ParentCamp was hosted at Travis World Language Academy. The discussion topics included: college and career readiness, community resources and services for students and families, helping and transitioning your child to post-secondary education, volunteer opportunities in the school and specifically fathers as volunteers, special education program and services, and effective discipline.

Based on the success of the first ParentCamp, the attendees are now planning to have an evening ParentCamp and a Saturday ParentCamp (likely in the fall) at different schools to accommodate a range of parents and families. Specific details for future events will be shared.
