“After taking this class, I have a goal of learning more about computers. I want to get a job in the medical field or in high tech,” said Yolanda, a Sherman Oaks parent enrolled in the eight-week Digital Life class offered through the Foothill Engagement Institute (FEI). The class is one of several offered to all CUSD parents throughout the year, thanks to our partnership with School Linked Services.

“I have wanted to go to college ever since I joined my son’s field trip to Foothill College,” said Idiana as she shared the digital vision board she created. Her presentation of aspirations and goals for herself and her family was part of the class’ culminating activities.

Their enthusiasm about continuing their education was echoed by the other 20 parents enrolled in the class. Their presentations included what they learned as they explored their hopes and goals about travel, entering a new profession, starting a business, helping their children with school and creating a better life for their families.

“Because of this class, I have more confidence and I want to learn more!” said another parent.

“It’s great for children to see their parents working toward a goal,” said Assistant Principal Pablo Viramontez. “It’s powerful for them to see you wanting to grow.” 

Foothill College Family Engagement Institute creates pathways to college for TWO generations by bridging families, schools and communities to make a critical difference in closing the equity gap. It was founded in 2010 with the goal of giving parents and caregivers the access, tools, and voice to support their children’s education, while also supporting their own educational growth and development.  

"When you include families in the process of accessing and engaging with education, you get better outcomes from students,” said FEI Executive Director Betsy Nikolchev

The next eight-week Digital Life class begins at Sherman Oaks on Tuesday, January 28, 2020, from 8:30am-10:30am. Additional courses are offered at Monroe, Blackford, Lynhaven, Rosemary and parents from any CUSD school may enroll.
