Another important responsibility of SPAC is to promote parent involvement in schools across the state. Parent Involvement in Education (PIE) consultants will visit LEAs that express an interest in going to the next level to expand meaningful parent involvement in their schools. They will act as parent involvement facilitators to (1) get parents and school staff working together from the beginning of the process and (2) provide non-threatening, parent-centered support to districts. PIE consultants will visit LEAs to deliver site-based training to parent involvement groups, emphasizing the importance of working together to help children succeed and sharing strategies to rally family-school-community partnerships.

Following the on-site training, they will continue to provide support and encouragement to parent involvement groups by way of conference calls, emails, and resources. PIE consultants will share the progress that LEAs make in cultivating meaningful parent involvement and community partnerships with the PDE regional coordinators.

Availability of on-site support is limited; however, Title I schools can complete a self-assessment to see where they stand on the effective parent involvement activities.
