Parent Leadership Academy is a 6-session academy dedicated to building the leadership capacity of Atlanta Public School parents and community leaders. We seek to empower parents to become involved in their community and schools through strengthening Parent Voice, Engagement and Accountability. Research shows parents have the greatest potential to improve the education of their children through home, school and system-level participation and informed advocacy.
In this Academy, parents
● build community with other parents and student advocates
● become informed about topics that impact their student’s education
● explore ways in which they can advocate for their students needs
