PEORIA - Class was in session for district 150 Thursday night, but this time the parents were the students.

Parent University kicked off at Mark Bills Middle School. It's a  program aimed at helping parents be more involved with their kids, but also more knowledgeable about community resources.

Workshops include 'College Bound Peoria' where students and parents learn the skills they'll need for higher education. Superintendent Grenita Lathan led a workshop to help people understand the district and its plans for the future.

“So it's not your typical ready night, your math night, your ISAT night. This is and everything encompassing from nutrition to academics to mental health. Everything that we're trying to bring forward at parent university,” said York Powers, Family and Community Coordinator for District 150.

Parent University lasts all school year. The next evening of workshops is October eighth at Northmoor Primary School.
