State Advisory Council for Parent Involvement in Education (SACPIE)
What is SACPIE?
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)
Family, School, and Community Partnership (FSCP) Definition: Families, early childhood programs, schools, and communities actively partnering to develop, implement, and evaluate effective and equitable practices to improve educational outcomes for children and youth.
Family and School Partnership in Education Month
November is Family and School Partnership in Education Month in Colorado. The State Advisory Council for Parent Involvement in Education (SACPIE) believes that every child deserves the opportunity to shoot for the stars. Just as a space launch requires engineers, mathematicians, and other experts working together on a shared mission, education needs many different people doing their part to ensure that every student achieves their educational goals. We know that families, educators, and community members all have a critical role to play in helping our children and youth to achieve their dreams.
SACPIE encourages early childhood programs, elementary schools, secondary schools, districts, and institutes of higher education to read the 2022 collection of Promising Partnership Practices and explore the P-12 FSCP Framework to increase their capacity to provide high impact partnering strategies that lead to positive student outcomes. When we have a unified vision that all students can overcome the opportunity gap and we provide any support they need to succeed, everyone can reach the stars.
