NAACP Parent Council

Who are we?

Formation of the Parents’ Council of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) came about as an outgrowth of ideas put forth during the 1995 and 1996 NAACP Youth Summits. The Parents’ Council is one of the vehicles created to empower African American and other minority parents to take a more proactive role in the education of their children. The Council is made up of parents, guardians and grandparents of minority children enrolled in the Montgomery County Public School System (MCPS) and residents who may not have children in school but who share the goal of equal education for all children, particularly minority children. We are partners with MCPS.


What is Our Purpose?

The Purpose of the Parents’ Council is to provide a forum through which interested citizens may offer assistance, guidance and support to African American parents and students of Montgomery County Public Schools (MCPS) to pursue the highest quality education possible through encouragement, information sharing, positive motivation, critical evaluation and advocacy.


How are we organized?

The Parents’ Council is composed of representatives from each school in Montgomery County. Selected by their principal and/or PTA’s, these parent representatives work together within the county’s schools for the purpose of training other parents to be advocates for their children, sharing information, and resolving problems that impact the education of children. Any interested person may attend the monthly meetings. The Council meets monthly throughout the year to share information that parents can use to enhance their child’s chances of academic success, and provide training to parent representatives.


Meetings will be held virtually for the 2023-2024 MCPS school year between 6:30-8:00pm. Visit our website for meeting updates and other resources.
