Parents for Public Schools of Pitt County is a newly created chapter of Parents for PublicSchools, Inc., a national organization with a "new brand of parent involvement" which strives to elevate the role of parents in public schools from passive consumers to active participants. PPS parents raise standards, solve problems and advocate for their community. In short, PPS parents demand excellent schools and have the skills to make it happen.
National PPS accomplishes work through three main vehicles:
- A network of community-based chapters located throughout the country that tackle local issues and represent the voice of parents.
- A Parent Leadership Institute, which empowers parents and provides them with professional training that rivals FORTUNE 500 programs.
- Leadership and empowerment training for like-minded organizations across the United States.
