Parent University is a community collaborative led by Natomas Unified to help parents become full partners in their children’s education. We partner with community agencies and organizations to offer free courses, family events and activities that will equip families with new or additional skills, knowledge, resources, and confidence.

Diverse Conversations

As part of our intentional efforts to engage families of diverse backgrounds and cultures, the CAFE department hosts a series of Diverse Conversations Session throughout the year. During these sessions, families are invited to share their diverse perspectives to support student success. The groups are designed to engage with cultural groups that have been historically underrepresented. These groups include Black/African-American, Asian American, Latino/Hispanic, and Native Americans. Sessions are advertised throughout the year. View the section on upcoming sessions to learn when the next series of Diverse Conversations will be held.
