The Commonwealth Institute for Parent Leadership (CIPL) is a continuum of engagement and leadership development for families, schools and communities to increase academic success of Kentucky students and progress of Kentucky’s public schools. Powerful partnerships are achieved, when active champions for education honor and recognize the connection between families and schools, as a core strategy for improving student academic achievement. You can find information about CIPL engagement opportunities on our website at https://www.prichardcommittee.org/familyengagement/

What is the CIPL Fellowship? 

The CIPL Fellowship is designed to offer participants information related to Kentucky’s education system and key topics relevant today to help increase success for all students.  The Fellowship provides candidates with a unique opportunity to connect with others that share their determination and experience; brainstorm ideas about their local work; share valuable connections and resources; and build strong peer-to-peer relationships that are relied upon for support and ideas. Through the completion of webinars, networking opportunities, community leadership, statewide events, and local projects candidates become Fellows.
