Welcome! Students win when we work together

At CPPS of Seattle, we educate, engage and mobilize parents to promote equitable, quality public schools. OUR PLEDGE: We learn from each other so that schools can meet students’ diverse needs.

Parent leaders share what they’ve learned about themselves, their schools, their children and their communities while participating in CPPS programs.

THE RIPPLE EFFECT: One parent can nurture dozens of students in schools that most need to close the gap. Imagine the impact of 100! We train parents as tutors while also nurturing their leadership skills, so they, in turn, can mentor other parents who want to make a difference.

We’ve trained hundreds of people, at dozens of schools, across multiple languages – reaching into some of the most diverse neighborhoods in our state.
