Did you know that the Department of Title I Administration has a center specifically designed to provide additional support to parents of children participating in the Title I Schoolwide Program? The Title I Neighborhood Resource Center (NRC), located in the Northside Shopping Centre, hosts weekly parent workshops that are not only educational, but fun too! Each month focuses on a particular theme to help parents expand their knowledge and skills in ways that contribute to their child’s well-being and overall academic success.
In addition to the special themed workshops, the NRC also offers a Stress Relief and Creative Gift Ideas for Parents workshop and serves as a training center for Community Involvement Specialists (CIS) and Community Liaison Specialists (CLS). Selected CIS and CLS come together each month to receive technical assistance that broaden their knowledge base and increase their ability to provide comprehensive support to parents of students attending Title I schools.
The Early Learning Coalition (ELC) is also partnering with the Title I NRC to provide easy access, support and services to parents of children, ages birth to 12 years old. A representative from the ELC is available at the center every Tuesday and Thursday, from 12:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.
For more information of all of the amazing things happening at the NRC, please visit the center at 7900 N.W. 27th Avenue, Suite F-9, Miami, Florida 33147, call us at 305-694-7120, or you may access the Title I Administration’s website, www.Title1.dadeschools.net.
