Families and students can stay engaged throughout the school year with Parent Academy TO GO. Parent Academy TO GO is a series of virtual webinars for families to watch at home. In addition, there are several virtual chats and workshops coming up that may be helpful for families. Among them:

Online learning is very challenging for some of our MCPS families. This virtual chat is a collaborative, community event built on the five primary languages in MCPS and created to listen to the technology needs of parents. It will create solutions with parents in real time so they can learn more about how to help their children online, and how to solve problems when the technology stops. Presented by MCPS staff and recommended for families of elementary, middle and high school students
Monday, Oct. 19, Mental Health Monday Virtual Workshop: An Overview of Social-Emotional Learning, 6-7 p.m.
Join us for an overview of Social-Emotional Learning (SEL). SEL is a process through which adults and children deepen their expertise in understanding and managing emotions and learning how they impact a person’s choices, relationships and outlook in life. MCPS staff will discuss and answer questions regarding SEL and how it impacts your child. Recommended for families of elementary, middle and high school students. Presented by MCPS staff
