SACPIE was established in 2009 and is the State Advisory Council for Parent Involvement in Education. The Colorado General Assembly found that it was in the best interests of the state to create a state advisory council for parent involvement in education that will review best practices and recommend to policy makers and educators strategies to increase parent involvement in public education, thereby helping improve the quality of public education and raise the level of students’ academic achievement throughout the state. (C.R.S. § 22-7-301(2), 2012)
October 2013 is Family and School Partnership in Education Month. The goal of this special month is to actively share information and support families and educators working together to ensure learning success for every student, from pre-school to postsecondary and workforce readiness, and including higher education. During the month, the State Advisory Council for Parent Involvement in Education (SACPIE) is highlighting partnering resources to support stakeholders as they work together.
This week’s highlighted resources honor the cultural and linguistic diversity of Colorado’s families.
