Register for a Parent Computer Skills Workshop

Teacher helping with Chromebook

With the shift towards using technology to support student learning, Jefferson Parish Schools is committed to providing resources and support to our families as well. In partnership with the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, JP Schools is excited to offer free, in-person Parent Computer Skills Workshops for JPS parents in a socially distant setting in both English and Spanish. These computer and technology workshops will train parents in basic computer skills to help their child(ren) participating in virtual and in-person learning. Computers will be provided by the district for use during the training sessions.

These workshops complement the resources and support available in the Family Resource Center for Online Learning and through our Parent and Student Technology Helpdesk.
