School forum this weekend for Seattle and South King County parents

The Road Map Project is hosting a day-long forum this Saturday designed for parents wanting to help their children in school.

Nearly 500 parents already have signed up, and registration is still open.   At the event, which is free, parents can hear from experts in early brain development, learn about robotics and other science-and-technology subjects, find out more about how their school districts work, and how to help prepare their students for college.

The event  will be held at Foster High School, 4242 S. 144th St., Tukwila.  If arranged in advance, interpretation services will be available.  Breakfast and lunch will be served, and buses will be available to take parents to the event from Seattle, Kent, Highline and Federal Way.  Registration starts at 9 a.m. and the event runs from 10 a.m. through 3 p.m.  Children can attend with their parents, and there will be some hands-on activities, including a math, science and technology session by Radio Disney.

Parents also will have access to dental screenings and information on other health issues, job training and low-cost ways to receive Internet access.
