McKINNEY — McKinney ISD is pleased to announce that the district is offering spring semester sessions of its free Practical Parent Education classes. The classes will be held at Wolford Elementary, Vega Elementary and Burks Elementary and will run from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m.

All McKinney ISD Practical Parent Education classes are free of charge and open to the McKinney community at large. The class schedule runs from January through April.
