As the National PIRC Coordination Center, SEDL and HFRP
produce resource materials and information geared to
parental involvement and student achievement, conduct
training and technical assistance events, conduct site-visits,
and provide technology services to help PIRCs carry out
their core programmatic, management, and accountability
activities. The Miko Group, Inc. provides logistical
and program management support to the national center.
Sixty-two PIRCs in every state, the District of Columbia and the outlying areas were awarded PIRC grants in this grant cycle.
The Coordination Center will serve all of these PIRCs by supporting management capacity, improving service delivery, compiling and providing access to research-based materials and effective practices regarding parent training and parental involvement that contribute to improved student academic achievement.
