The Pleasanton school district will host a workshop for parents and guardians Saturday to assist them with strategies to help their children overcome barriers to their educational experience.
The district's free Parent/Guardian University will run from 9 a.m. to noon at Village High School on Bernal Avenue.
The workshop is open to all, including those who do not have students now attending school.
The goal of the workshop is to help parents and guardians become better equipped to guide and support their child's education.
A variety of workshops will be offered, ranging from cyber safety to parenting preteens to understanding standardized test scores.
Session topics include "Strategies for De-Stressing Homework Time," "Navigating Substance Abuse with Your Child" and "Supporting Your Anxious Child."
Pleasanton Unified teachers, instructional coaches and staff -- along with experts from Alameda Office of Education, Pleasanton PTA, Axis Community Health and other local offices -- will lead the sessions.
Open house sessions of the district's new science-and-technology preschool, its donation closet for those in need, called The Hangar, and Village High's new media center will also be offered.
