Classes and Trainings for Parents

The Office of Family and Community Engagement (FACE) offers a number of training sessions and classes to help parents and guardians become effective advocates and academic partners. We hope these classes encourage you and your family to stay engaged in all aspects of your child’s education.

Parenting Partners

This eight-week course helps parents enhance their parenting skills and support their children’s education through a series of workshops.

Parent Leadership Training Program

This six-week course empowers parents to take on leadership roles in their schools and become effective participants on school-based and district committees.

LEAP Training

DPS uses a system to evaluate and support the growth of our teachers. This training will help parents and families understand how a teacher is measured and what that means for your child.

This training provides many practical strategies that all parents can use to prepare their children for college and career.

Mile High United Way Center for Family Opportunity

The Mile High United Way Center for Family Opportunity provides a wide range of services for parents and families to support independence and a future of success. They provide classes in financial coaching, employment, GED, English as a Second Language, business development and legal services. This is a collaborative partnership with the Mile High United Way and non-profit agencies throughout Denver. Currently, services are provided only in southwest Denver.

Family Empowerment

The goal of this initiative is to help families understand their role in their child’s education and to ensure that their child graduates prepared for college and career. Parents and families will learn specific strategies that they can easily incorporate into their everyday lives. These strategies are designed to support learning and development from birth through high school.
