Initially, the AAC Parent Academy will provide instructional sessions and toolkits (opportunities, resources and information) on various topics for those interested in advocating for African American students. Family and community members who cannot attend the sessions in person will have the ability to view the materials and resources presented online.
In addition, the AAC Parent Academy Team will focus on how to close the achievement gaps between African American students and other student groups. This will require many different outreach mechanisms to meet the needs of our target audience. It is also our goal to make resources and instructional materials available to parents without access to the Internet.
