• The Providence Parent University is designed to help families like yours gain the information and tools they need to become more involved in their children’s education. Research has proven that students with engaged families exhibit faster rates of literacy acquisition, earn higher grades, have better social skills and are less likely to be absent from school.  Your participation will help strengthen the connections between your child, your family and your school. 

    For more information, contact the Office of Family and Community Engagement at (401) 456-0686 or email face@ppsd.org.
