Parents & Families Influence the Futures of Their Students Most

The Importance of Families

Although parents and family members may sometimes wonder whether or not they truly impact the decisions high school students make about life beyond high school, research shows that the influence family members have is undeniable. The better-informed families are about the career and college opportunities that exist within a community, the stronger choices our high school students will make about life after graduation.

Future Readiness Family Seminars

Round Rock ISD’s Department of Future Readiness provides free family seminars on a weekly basis covering topics such as

  • How to earn college credit while still in high school
  • Selecting careers after high school that pay you to learn while you earn a salary
  • Learning to communicate effectively with family members
  • Getting organized for school success
  • Staying mentally healthy
