Parent Collaborative

Parent Collaboratives are a network-based parent engagement initiative grounded in partnership-building that ensures the learning and leadership experience of parents is relational, developmental, collaborative, and linked to learning.

Parent Collaborative meetings bring together parents and community members from Title 1 schools within each network to achieve these goals:

  • Provide parents with updated and relevant district data to better inform them of the status of their individual schools
  • Connect parents with both citywide and CPS departmental resources to help foster their leadership skills and their engagement in the learning process
  • Deliver both need-based and research-based workshops to ensure we are empowering and servicing schools
  • Help parents create partnerships with educators, students, and other parents to increase the social, cultural, and human capital in their schools​​​​​​​

To learn more about Parent Collaborative meetings, contact your FACE Specialist or the Office of Family and Community Engagement (FACE).
