The Student and Parent Support Program goals are to build positive community relations and increase student achievement by creating equitable and sustainable systems that promote high student achievement. 

Bringing together our HUSD community

This year the Student and Parent Support Program office is able to bring together our HUSD community, by hosting two wonderful events; the Million Father March on the first day of school and the Young Black Men Awards in April. We are celebrating the excellence, talent and commitment of our community by joining these two groups together in an end of the year celebration. We would like to recognize the amazing contributions administration, board members, parents, students and teachers have made throughout the year in the success of our students, as well as provide information to support continued academic and social success for all students.
