WCPSS Parent Academy

The Wake County Public Schools System is excited to announce their first Parent Academy Catalog (see attachment). The catalog contains a series of free skill-building classes, workshops, and educational events aimed at helping families learn to engage with the school system and contribute positively to their child’s academic and social success.

The Parent Academy is a Wake County Public School System (WCPSS) initiative designed to strengthen the relationship between parents/guardians and schools and to help parents navigate the school system. Research shows that students achieve more when parents are involved in their child’s education.

This is a partnership with a diverse team of WCPSS educators and local community agencies, organizations, businesses, schools, and faith-based institutions.

Credit by Demonstrated Mastery (CDM) District Resources

State Board of Education policy requires school districts to implement Credit by Demonstrated Master (CDM) - a process by which students can show mastery in a high school credit course without actually taking the course.  The District has scheduled multiple parent information sessions to address questions and concerns.  The Parent Session Flyer lists the dates, times, and locations for each event.  The District has also created a CDM Resource Website and email address for parents considering CDM.
