Kingsport City Schools Launches Parent University to Support Families

KINGSPORT, Tenn. – Kingsport City Schools will launch a new video series on YouTube called, KCS Parent University, that will be aired periodically on Thursday nights at 7 p.m.
The goal of KCS Parent University is to address certain challenges families face by providing information to educate, empower, and connect with resources either within KCS or within the Kingsport community. KCS Superintendent Dr. Jeff Moorhouse will be joined alongside other KCS employees, community partners, and/or volunteers to address such challenges. 
"KCS Parent University is an effort to support families in partnering together to raise children that not only have intellect of the mind but also intelligence of the heart in an incredibly challenging environment," said KCS Superintendent Dr. Jeff Moorhouse. "We are better together."
Sessions may include topics such as internet safety, substance prevention/education, caregiver support, vocational training opportunities for families, healthy eating on a budget, and access to community resources regarding mental health. 
Families can submit questions that will potentially be asked during the promoted session (via KCS social media platforms) by submitting questions to [email protected] by Wednesday at 5 p.m. 
The first KCS Parent University topic will air on Thursday, February 10, 2022 at 7 p.m. entitled "Internet Safety for Our Children" with Sergeant Craig Dunworth with the Kingsport Police Department.
KCS families can access KCS Parent University sessions on the KCS YouTube Channel (KPTSchools) the day of the event (Thursdays at 7 p.m.) or at their leisure by viewing archived videos under the KCS Parent University Playlist.
