To help parents learn more about the DC education system, PAVE hosts trainings and workshops about education policies and issues throughout the city.
As a PAVE parent leader, you can host an event at your school, chair a meeting with an elected official, attend trainings and workshops, and help to get more families involved in education policy in our city.
Contact PAVE at firstname.lastname@example.org to meet with a member of the PAVE family and learn more!
We give you the tools and information to advocate for your children
PAVE helps parents understand the education system, build relationships with elected officials and policymakers, and lead and organize other families in advocating for policy change. This work allows PAVE parents to become regular and consistent advocates, an informed constituency, and grassroots community leaders. PAVE approaches all decisions with focus on the following long-term goals:
- PAVE parents will identify, understand, advance, and achieve policy objectives that promote and support great public schools for all children.
- PAVE will build and sustain access to and accountability within school choice for all families in DC, so that all parents can meaningfully access the best schools for their children.
- PAVE will create a culture of parent leadership that transforms the way parents engage in the design and development of the education system in DC.
