City Schools welcomes you, the families of our 84,000 students, to Family Institute, a place for you to come together, get involved and find free resources and opportunities to help you support your child at school, home and in life.

NEW: Reverse mentoring workshop series help parents use computers to support their children at school
Ever feel like report cards are not as simple as they used to be? Want help making sense of the test and school data? This six (6) session workshop series will help you access the important information and data on your child and their school and find the tools to understand it all. We will help you get set up with everything from an email account to a login for the school system tools. In addition, each participant will get assistance from a student from Digital Harbor Foundation to walk you through each step and help answer your questions.
The six-session workshop series will be held on Thursday evenings in February and March at the Digital Harbor Foundation. Register today!
Parenting has never been easy, years ago or now, in the 21st century. Here, on the Family Institute web section, you can find tips, resources and workshops to help you stay in tune with and involved in your child’s school experience. You can also work with us to achieve an important goal: helping your child get excited about—and come to love—learning. A love of learning takes root at home and in the classroom but influences all parts of life. It inspires students to follow their curiosities, develop their interests, make meaningful connections in and out of school—and ultimately build a life that is all their own!
