Testimonials

Northern Kentucky 2011 Commonwealth Institute for Parent Leadership (CIPL) participants

“Parent Leadership 101 was a valuable experience for our parents as a bridge from volunteer experience to leadership. It began the understanding of school documents as well as learning the state school data and current legislation. Three of the parents that attended Parent Leadership 101 have gone on to apply and be accepted to the full parent leadership institute (CIPL) and one is now a candidate for local school board. The training gave them a basic knowledge and a thirst for more. I highly recommend the training.” — Sande Shepherd, District Family Engagement Coordinator, Covington Independent Public Schools, Kentucky 

 

“Thanks for all you have done to provide opportunities for our parents.  These projects are making a difference in our schools.” — Tim Hanner, Kenton County, Kentucky Superintendent

2011 Commonwealth Institute for Parent Leadership (CIPL) participants

“Improved student achievement stands as the primary reason we invite the Prichard Committee and the Commonwealth Institute for Parent Leadership to our district each year. The training revitalizes parent involvement in our schools. We know that when parents are well informed, the effects on school success are magnified. The projects designed and implemented by our parent participants enrich our students’ experiences in addition to strengthening the school and parent partnership. No group can empower parents like the Prichard Committee”.  Nancy M. Waldrop, Ed.D., Superintendent, McCracken County Public Schools, Kentucky
