Parent involvement is the key that opens the door for children’s success in school. The Colorado Statewide Parent Coalition (CSPC) strongly believes this, and for over 30 years has worked to assure that parents are provided with the tools that they need to help their children be successful in school.

The CSPC believes that the school, the home and the community must work together to ensure that every child receives an education of the highest quality.

Dear Friends,


As many of you know Colorado Gives Day is December 8th. Please consider donating to the Colorado Statewide Parent Coalition. The CSPC has been helping families become more effectively involved in their children’s education for four decades. We understand the schools can’t do the work of educating our kiddos alone. They need our help! The CSPC does that. Please browse through our website and learn of all the great things that we do through the Coalition…in order to continue this great work, I need your help.


Thank you,


Richard Garcia 

Executive Director

With this program parents learn how to utilize their home environments and every day activities to enhance their child’s learning.

PASO Program

PASO Program


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.

Family Engagement


Family Engagement Program

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.
