Welcome to the Parents' Toolkit
The purpose of the Toolkit is to provide parents with information about various issues that relate to them or their children. The site includes links to various sites that have information that may be helpful to parents raising children in this day and time. This Toolkit is meant to take the place of the Parents of the 21st Century Training Series. While HISD will still offer parent training opportunities from time to time, we are hoping the Toolkit will allow more parents to take advantage of the resources available to them. Please contact me if you have questions about the Toolkit.
