Because the sessions will be held simultaneously, all three sessions will be recorded with links on the D90 website available shortly afterward. This way, individuals who may not be able to attend the programs in real-time (or would like to view more than one session) will have the chance to do so. District 90 remains especially grateful to our community partners for their collaboration in planning and coordinating this event, including the River Forest Township, NAMI, Positive Youth Development (PYD), and the Thrive Counseling Center.
We hope that you will join us at this Parent University!
