Conyers, Ga. – Parent Academy returns Saturday, March 18, 2017, 8 a.m. - 3 p.m. at Rockdale Career Academy (RCA), 1064 Culpepper Drive, Conyers for the 12th semester of improving lives with free classes for parents and teens. This year, community members are also invited to help shape the next Strategic Plan, a five-year road map for Rockdale County Public Schools (RCPS). 

Many successful initiatives at RCPS were part of prior Strategic Plans, including the creation of Rockdale Career Academy and Open Campus, the 1:1 technology plan and Learning Reimagined, and Specialty and Choice programs to name just a few. Help fuel this cycle of success at RCPS and create a world-class system with your input.

We invite you to attend the Superintendent’s Opening Session and Strategic Planning roundtable discussions. Let your voice be heard! What is the school system doing well that we should keep doing? What do we need to improve upon? What does a world-class school system look like to you? Your valuable thoughts and ideas will help the Strategic Planning Committee during the next step in the planning process.  

This Opening Session is 8:30 – 9:45 a.m. and open to all community members. Participants may attend the Opening Session and roundtable discussions without registering for Parent Academy. Middle and high school students are encouraged to join the conversation as well.   

After the roundtable discussions, Parent Academy offers a wide range of enriching and practical classes. Topics include college readiness, CPR, self-defense, helping your kids with today’s math, preparing for standardized testing and more – all focused on helping parents and students become successful in life.

The day also includes a free lunch and door prizes, with a special door prize drawing after the keynote address and an extra chance to win for those who pre-register. Parents can also browse local businesses and non-profits in the vendors market.
