College Planning Workshop for GATE Families


Get Directions

#var:page_name# cover

Join the Placentia-Yorba Linda Unified School District (PYLUSD) for the Parent University class titled, "College Planning Workshop for GATE Families," with speaker, Paul Kanarek.

In this class, the District will present an informative College Planning Workshop designed specifically for GATE families that will "separate fact from fiction in the current college admissions process." Mr. Kanarek has been a guest speaker with the District before, and PYLUSD families genuinely enjoyed and learned from his presentation. The evening will very much focus on GATE style students, and given that Mr. Kanarek has more than 35 years of college admissions experience, he will be happy to answer any questions that families may want to ask.

----- What is Parent University?

The PYLUSD values the active role parents take in their student’s education. In order to support this relationship, PYLUSD has implemented a parent education program entitled “Parent University.”

PYLUSD will offer free workshops on various educational topics throughout the school year so parents can become better equipped to support their student’s learning. Research indicates that when schools work together with families to support learning, students perform better in school and throughout life.
