Hartford Parent University March 10th held its largest graduation ceremony ever – with 35 parents from the M.D. Fox, Thirman Milner, Simpson-Waverly, and SAND schools completing the Achieve Hartford!-supported No Child Held Back™ program douruei.  This means these parents have taken ownership over their children’s learning, fully understood their role as a partner with the teacher, and built up their skills using personalized learning plans and technology.

For the parents at these four schools completing this program, it also means that now, all parents have a personalized learning plan for their children and a Chromebook tablet for emailing their teachers, checking Powerschool, and accessing online learning resources, along with up to $300 in “solution services” to help their children pursue educational interests or address educational challenges.

Other results from the parents’ participation in the program include:

  • On ability to very confidently support their children’s education, the parent proportion rose from 32 percent before the program to 92 percent after the program;
  • In terms of confidence working with their children’s teachers, parents rating themselves at the top level (being very confident) rose from 28 percent before the program to 96 percent afterwards; and
  • Lastly, the average growth of self-reported knowledge, of what Student Centered Learning is, increased by almost 40 percent for parent participants as a result of this program.
