The Parent Leadership Institute (PLI) is a rigorous eight-week parent leadership development program that exposes participants to research-based standards linking family and community engagement to school success.

The purpose of PLI is to:

  • Develop cross-functional understanding of parent leader practices infused with the five components of our family and community engagement strategies

  • Increase parent leader capacities to provide support to principals and teachers aligned with research-based standards that help promote student achievement

  • Streamline the process across all Pods so that adult learners throughout the District can engage in the learning process

  • Improve two-way communication and messaging of district-wide initiatives
