The Baldwin County School District is taking many steps to ensure we provide quality information and resources to families. Our Title I schools and the school district strive to build capacity to involve parents and stakeholders in an effective partnership, as well as, share and support high student academic achievement. The research is clear that when schools and families support each other, students of all backgrounds and various abilities achieve at higher levels.
The ultimate goal of parent involvement is to increase student achievement by engaging and empowering parents to become actively involved in their children’s education across all grade levels.

Parent University is a community collaborative that provides free learning sessions designed to assist parents in supporting their children to achieve in school and life. The sessions focus on what children are learning in school, advocacy, parent leadership, effective parenting skills, and personal growth and development.
The mission of Parent University is to educate, inspire and empower parents to meet the needs of their children by becoming their first and most important teacher.
