Parent Resource Centers Open Their Doors for Visits with District Staff

April 20, 2016 – The 15 Regional Parent Resource Centers at the Bakersfield City School District (BCSD) hosted an open house event on April 14. Each site showcased the various services they provide via poster boards, handouts, and power point presentations. Each parent center liaison offered visitors a friendly tour and was available to answer questions. The centers were bustling with visits throughout the day from school teachers and staff, as well as District office employees and members of the BCSD Board of Education.

“We wanted to give teachers, school staff, and Education Center staff the opportunity to see how we’ve grown,” said Dee Dee Harrison, Coordinator of Parent Engagement. “We want everyone to see how we are working towards increasing parent engagement across the district one center at a time.”

Services available at the different centers include English Language Classes, Arts and Crafts, and Grandparents Club.  Click here for more information about the Parent Resource Centers.
