Parent academy boosts leadership skills

Parent academy boosts leadership skills

San Antonio Independent School District (SAISD) parents are now more prepared to answer college and career questions from their children.

In an effort to increase parent involvement and develop leadership skills, SAISD partnered with the University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA) to offer a College and Career Readiness Parent Academy.

Parents from the GEARUP program attended five six-hour Saturday classes that focused on developing leadership skills, financial literacy and planning for academic success. The academy graduated it’s first inaugural class last December during a special ceremony at the UTSA downtown campus.

Participating parents walked away feeling more confident about preparing for their child’s academic journey after graduating from high school.
