In September, parents of students turned out in great numbers to be a part of a first of it's kind program that Blue Ridge school leaders are excited about the future of.
Susan Wilson is the Superintendent of Blue Ridge Schools and indicates the first Parents Academy was centered around the common core math curriculum and reviews from the first event were very positive.
Wilson says the district will have another Parents Academy in early November at their various schools centered around a couple different subject matters for students of all ages.
All of the parents academy sessions are free to the public and Wilson encourages anyone interested in upcoming dates and programs to visit the district website
to find more information.
