Providing resources to inform citizens and promote neighborhood school success
Locally, CCPPI strives to support improvement efforts of Houston ISD neighborhood schools. We engage with community members, board members, the superintendent, central and campus level leaders, local philanthropist, and Texas Education Agency leaders in order to support fair and equitable treatment of schools. In fact, CCPPI remains committed to helping neighborhood schools be the schools of choice in the eyes of community residents. We directly advocate for legislation related to school finance reform, full day Pre-K, and enhanced school safety among other issues that empower communities. As a part of our advocacy and research initiative, CCPPI provided grants that provided opportunities for students from Texas Southern University Jordan-Leland School of Public Affairs and the University of Houston Hobby School and Graduate College of Social Work to serve as legislative interns.
