Parent Academy Workshops
To promote continued cooperation between families and schools, Wake County Public School System is offering Parent Academy – a series of classes, workshops and events aimed at helping families learn to engage with the school system and positively contribute to their child's academic and social success.
Throughout your child’s educational career, you and your child will make many decisions about programs, schools, opportunities and courses. As your child’s most effective advocate, you need to know how these decisions can affect your child’s future. Families who attend Parent Academy will gain invaluable knowledge – from preparing their kindergartener for the first day of school to choosing the right courses for their college-bound high school student. All events are free and open to the public. Registration is required.

SPAN Access Available for Parents and Students
Note - 2012-13 School year: All SPAN accounts will be set-up or reactivated by the end of September. There are several hundred accounts which require attention, so this process takes a while. We appreciate your patience!
Daniels parents have access to the Student/Parent Access Network (SPAN) software program! SPAN allows students and parents access to data such as grades, demographics, attendance, schedules, discipline, and teacher recommendations from your home computer. Parents will need internet access and an active email account in order to establish a SPAN account. Parents will also be required by the County to verify current address and contact information upon applying for a SPAN account. In order to register for this service, a SPAN Account form must be completed. There are two ways to complete a SPAN Account form and open a SPAN account—one form can be completed and turned in at Daniels with photo identification; the other form can be completed at home, notarized, and sent to Daniels. Forms to establish a SPAN account are available in the Main Office, Student Services Offices, or you can find the forms posted below.
