Colorado Statewide Parents Coalition is partnering with school districts from Poudre Valley and Adams County to bring parents to the Parent Academy. With the help of the districts we have close to 400 parents singed up to attend these two parent conferences. Families will leave with tools to help their students succeed in school.
These two conferences are designed to help parents become advocates for their children and their education.
There will be workshops that will cover 7 secrets for student success, Language and Literacy Development, Transitioning to High School and a whole lot more.
Thanks to the school districts of Adams County and Poudre Valley these next two events will be a success!
Note: the conference is not open to the general public; families were selected by their community liaisons at their schools to participate.
PASO Parents! Please come to this evening event and talk to your Child Care Provider to ensure that your child is getting the best care. Parents and Providers communicating will ensure success in their child’s academic and daily lives.

With this program parents learn how to utilize their home environments and every day activities to enhance their child’s learning. In the small samples of the children whose parents participated in the program and who have implemented the learning strategies at home, these children have maintained and/or have surpassed some of the Kindergarten Bench Marks.
The purpose of the Providers Advancing School Outcomes (PASO) training program is to create an equitable, replicable, community based model program for providing professional development in early childhood education to Latino, Family, Friend and Neighbor (FFN) providers to: promote school readiness to Latino children, birth to 5 years old, and to prevent the achievement gap between Latino and non-Latino children before they enter Kindergarten.
Schools cannot raise student achievement on their own. To do so, they must build a culture of engagement for parents. This Program strengthens schools’ family engagement approaches and practices through coaching, technical assistance, and program implementation.
