SAISD families are invited to the District’s fall Parent Summit at Trinity University, which will focus on “College and Career Readiness at All Ages.” This conference-style event will offer parents information about college admissions and financial aid, as well as helpful tips about how to  engage their children in learning at home. Activities will be provided for children who are 3 and older, and parents are encouraged to attend the opening sessions with their middle and high school-aged children.

SAISD asks that interested parents contact their child’s school to sign up with the Parent & Family Liaison.

The event is sponsored by the Trinity University Center for Educational Leadership.

This will be the first time the event is held on a college campus, a setting that highlights the event’s theme. The District is stepping up its efforts to engage parents in preparing their children for college and career at all ages and stages of their child’s education. Also, the conference will be held on a Saturday to better accommodate parents’ schedules.

College and career resources will be available for parents, and exhibitors from a variety of organizations, including Café College and GenTX, will be there to share information and answer questions. Parents who attend the conference for its duration will receive a Certificate of Attendance.

At the biannual Parent Summit, parents get to choose which sessions they want to attend. The sessions provide important information that helps parents make informed decisions about their child’s education and equips them to take a more active role in the education process.
