Parent Leadership

Anyone with a child in a NYC public school -- parents, foster parents, guardians -- can be a parent leader. Parent leaders:

  • volunteer in schools (not just in their children’s classrooms)
  • become PA/PTA board members
  • sit on School Leadership Teams (SLTs)
  • organize parents to advocate for their children or their schools
  • join district and citywide education groups
  • motivate and guide other parents into action
