Family involvement is a vital part of the success of children’s education at ECE Maddox. We organize several family education and networking events that encourage discussion and support among parents, their children, and school staff.

We invite all of you to join us. Let’s start something together. Let’s change the world!!

State Advisory Council for Parent Involvement in Education (SACPIE)

What is SACPIE?

SACPIE was established in 2009 and is the State Advisory Council for Parent Involvement in Education. The Colorado General Assembly found that it was in:

"...the best interests of the state to create a state advisory council for parent involvement in education that will review best practices and recommend to policy makers and educators strategies to increase parent involvement in public education, thereby helping improve the quality of public education and raise the level of students’ academic achievement throughout the state." (C.R.S. § 22-7-301(2), 2012)

Family, School, and Community Partnership Definition: Families, early childhood programs, schools, and communities actively partnering to develop, implement, and evaluate effective and equitable practices to improve educational outcomes for children and youth.
