One hundred Foothill parents graduated from the Parent Institute for Quality Education. Through Foothill's GEAR UP grant, the school received 10 weeks of parent classes. This is our second year of providing these parent classes and at the end of the 10 week program, a graduation ceremony was held and participants received a diploma. Cal Poly Pomona also guarantees that the children of PIQE graduates will be accepted if they meet the entrance criteria. Parents who participate learn how to create a positive and lasting educational environment at home using a number of proven academic success tools: dedicating a home study location and time of day for homework; creating ongoing dialog with their kids’ surrounding their academic successes and challenges; discussing children’s college expectations; and more.
