Parent Book Study

As a district, we know that student wellbeing has been a rising issue across the country, and Granville is not immune to this challenge. To continue the conversation around youth wellbeing and creating conditions for their success, Granville Schools is offering a book study for parents. We will be reading and discussing The Self-Driven Child co-authored by one of our featured speakers on August 17th- William Stixrud, PhD. The book will be divided into three sections, and conversations will occur in small groups of parents facilitated by Granville Schools staff. Click here to register to be a part of these important discussions.
