Parents as Partners
CPLAN was founded in 2016 by a group of mothers that took a stand for their children’s education. They realized that in order to make an impact, they needed to work together and collectively push back against the education system. Because at the end of the day, many voices are stronger than one.
We believe that parents, community members, and school staff need to work together to create necessary and sustainable change in the education system. We know that if given the proper resources, training, and support, all parents and community members can be a part of this change. Which is why CPLAN strives to create opportunities for parents to step into their power and put their students on a path toward lifetime success.
Share the impact of equitable education with policy makers and school administration to hold district, charter, parochial, and Metropolitan Council for Educational Opportunity (METCO) systems accountable
CPLAN's model is parents and educators as partners. This is built on a foundation of active leadership roles for parents, and ensures that all members have a shared voice in decision making.

"At my kids’ IEP meeting, I felt like I was on the same level as them for the first time and that’s because of CPLAN."
