KDS Parent Education
In Partnership with Parents
KDS Parent Education ensures our community has access to cutting-edge research in child development, wellbeing, and supporting student achievement. Recent parent education sessions have included information on how to decide if a child is ready to start school; how to talk to teens about substance use; motivating young people; and how to navigate eating disorders. Together, as families and as educators, we ensure the success of our students.
