The Chula Vista Elementary School District (CVESD), the largest elementary school district in California with more than 29,600 students, announced it is holding the Third Annual Parent Academy on Saturday, October 14. Registration is now open via

The Parent Academy directly engages parents in their children’s education and prepares them to provide the support needed for students to be more successful in school. The academy has been likened to “Professional Development for Parents.” Educators know that parents have a huge impact in their children’s lives and are in fact their children’s first and most important teachers.

"We take great pride in developing the whole child,” said Superintendent Francisco Escobedo, Ed.D. "Our theme for this school year is ‘Enlighten the Human Spirit through Relationships.’ Relationships matter. How we treat one another is more important than ever. That is among the reasons our District has focused efforts to strengthen relationships with our parents, and to build strong collaborative partnerships that enhance learning outcomes for the whole family.”

Sessions will address the areas of Math, Reading and Writing, English Language Development, Technology, Wellness, Anti-Bullying, GATE, the Arts and more.Photo of participants tackling a project together at last year's academy.
