Katy ISD has announced the launch of the Legacy Parent Academy in September. Unlike other programs where the process involves a nomination and application, this program is open to all parents and guardians of Katy ISD students.
The program is a series of informational sessions specifically designed to assist parents by providing valuable information that relates to topics that go beyond the academic experience to help equip parents with strategies and techniques to support their children.
The 2018-19 sessions will feature presentations from experts in topics that will address mental health, high school credits and financial aid for college, amongst others.

"In today’s world, we know parents and guardians are faced with decisions that will profoundly impact the future growth and development of their student.", states the Katy ISD Legacy Parent Academy website.
