What is the Parent & Community Concerns Committee?
Parenting in this day and age can be tricky. And navigating the ins and outs of modern day childhood education can be equally challenging. Your school PTA and PTSA Parent & Community Concerns (PCC) Representatives work hard to offer parent education events and information throughout the school year to help you navigate the road ahead. Some events are offered at individual school sites while others are open to parents from the entire school district. Be sure to check your school newsletter, school website and the SRVCPTA newsletter for information on upcoming events.
If you have an idea for a parent education topic, please be sure to inform your school's PTA or PTSA PCC Representative. Or contact the SRVCPTA PCC Committee Chair, Heidi Kenniston-Lee, at email@example.com.
Education is not only key to our children's success in life, but our success as parents!

Why Family Engagement is So Important!
Heidi Kenniston-Lee, VP, Parent and Community Concerns
At every turn, we encounter educators and parent leaders who encourage us to get involved in our children's education. And while it's often hard to find the time for such commitments, it really does pay off. According to the California State PTA (CAPTA), "Decades of research prove family engagement is key to kids' success in school - and in life." CAPTA offers three tips to "keep family engagement and student progress going throughout the entire year." Be sure to click on the active links below for more details.
CAPTA believes so strongly in the power of family engagement that they've sponsored Assembly Bill 2680 (Bonilla) which demonstrates a commitment to connecting families, schools and communities to improving student outcomes by allocating a one-time investment of seed money for school districts to develop family-engagement strategies.
