Parent Involvement

New Haven Public Schools encourages all parents to get involved in their children's education. This page provides information about ways to get involved. Talk to your school for information about how to get involved with your school's PTO or PTA.


CITYWIDE PARENT LEADERSHIP TEAM
The Citywide Parent Leadership Team (CPLT)  consists of parents from each school to provide input to the district.   This is an open group and encourages participation from parents interested in becoming more involved with both individual schools and the school district.  It’s the perfect place to meet parents like you, and come together to share ideas.  Hope you will join us! CPLT meets the first Thursday of every month at 5 p.m. at Wilbur Cross High School.
