  • Equity and excellence for all students
  • Parent leadership training to ensure effective engagement
  • Parent-to-parent networks to build community and support for students

We learn from each other so that schools can meet students’ diverse needs.



CPPS of Seattle urges a yes vote on both the Operations Levy and the Capital Levy (BTA IV).  These critical levies are both up for renewal in February.

The Operations Levy provides a quarter of the funds needed to operate Seattle Public Schools, including critical teaching and instructional programs. The Capital Levy (BTA IV) will provide much needed funding to expand school capacity and support classroom technology, academics and athletics. Please vote yes!


Just imagine: Trained tutors in every class. Now layer in deep and trusting relationships between parents and teachers, diverse role models for students, and strong ties between school and community. Oh, and extra eyes, ears and hands ready to help just when kids need it.

You can make this happen.

Join us for lunch April 1 and help us grow Parent Volunteer Mentorship, an acclaimed program that breaks through barriers of language, culture and income to transform the very nature of relationships between family and school … and gives students a whole lot of support along the way. Luncheon donations also support our roll out of A Better Way: The Charles Rolland Initiative for Public Engagement.

Turns out that when it comes to dramatically improving, and sustaining, student achievement, schools really can’t do it alone. Read more, here.
