At PAVE, our mission, vision, values, and work align around a single principle: our city is stronger when communities, schools, kids, and families make their voices heard in our education system.

 

To create great schools in every Ward and community in DC, we convene a network of over 2,000 parent leaders from across the city to amplify the voices that represent the diverse needs, interests, and perspectives of our families and communities.

We believe that ALL parents, regardless of their Ward, community, socioeconomic status, and/or educational background, when given the space, access, and tools, can be great parent leaders for their children and ALL children.

We know our model works. In three short years, through our network’s advocacy efforts, we’ve quadrupled funding for Out of School Time (OST) programs, assisted city leaders to develop a parent- and community-centered school report card, and secured historic increases in per-pupil and facilities funding for DC’s traditional public and public charter schools. Parent leaders led the #DoMoreWith54 campaign which resulted in an additional $13.1 million in funding for mental health supports in DC schools during a difficult budget year, and the Statement of Beliefs on Transparent Citywide School Budgets – written entirely by parents – launched the #WeBudgetTogether campaign and ultimately informed Councilmember David Grosso’s budget transparency bill. All of these accomplishments prove what’s possible when parents pave the way for responsive education policymaking

To build on the incredible momentum of the previous three years, we’ve outlined an ambitious $2 million Parent Power Campaign to further expand PAVE’s parent organizing and engagement work serving families and kids in our nation’s capital.

District Winery (385 Water St SW)

Monday, December 2, 2019
