CPLAN hosts free workshops throughout the year to help parents learn about navigating the school system, standing up for their children’s rights, and how to build effective partnerships with teachers and school administrators to ensure their children and all students are set up for academic success. Our Parent Leadership training series is designed as a peer leadership model for parents to train one another, share knowledge and experiences, and help one another develop their communication and community organizing skills.
