The Citywide Parent Council (CPC) of Boston Public Schools


What is the CPC?

Made up entirely of current BPS parent volunteers, the Citywide Parent Council (CPC) of Boston Public Schools is the official voice of all our 38,000 families. The CPC is the umbrella organization of each of our 128 schools’ School Parent Councils (SPCs), and we are constituted by the elected representatives from each of our schools.

We advocate as one voice for all of our of students and their families.
