School is back in session, and so is Parent University.

Parent University is a partnership between the Alliance for Public Schools and the Hillsborough County school district. Parents can take classes to learn more about district school choice offerings, the transition to middle or high school and how to find financial aid for college. Some sessions are offered in Spanish.

We've focused on Parent University teaching parents about Common Core State Standards and new exams.

The first event is planned for Saturday at Plant City High School. That session is full, but additional Parent University sessions are planned for Sept. 28 at Jefferson High School and Oct. 26 at Gaither High School.
