Family Forum Series

New Virtual Series Brings Families and Experts Together on Important Topics

Parenting is hard. Growing up is, too. The Sioux Falls School District and Avera Health are partnering to strengthen families in the 2022-23 school year. Experts from Avera and SFSD will host free VIRTUAL forums once each month.

These virtual sessions on a pre-selected topic will be held the third Tuesday of each month at 6pm through a secure webinar platform. Your anonymous participation provides a safe space to learn about the challenges facing today’s students and the resources available for help. The series does not offer personal medical advice, but rather general information to build a parent’s knowledge.
