Greetings to you!

This Buzz is the rarest of treats for us all: where we can clearly see the fruits of a year’s worth of labor. The results of the Parent Center data collection for 2019-2020 are in, and they reveal the true depth and volume of what Parent Centers accomplished in a year none of us will soon forget.

CPIR is also pleased to share infographics we created to summarize the wealth of information that the U.S. Department of Education provided in its two recently published, “must-read” Reopening Schools handbooks. And last but not least–the Parent Center eLearning Hub is on the launch pad and nearly ready to come blasting your way.

Parent Centers Rock It!

Parent Centers in Action 2019-2020 | Infographics
The results of the Parent Center data collection for 2019-2020 are in, and they are all the more amazing given the challenges you surmounted last year to help families during the pandemic. Take a look and then take a deep bow.

An Action-Packed Year for Parent Centers | Here’s the infographic CPIR produced with the data you submitted. It’s 2 pages (designed to be printed front/back to become a 1-page handout or mini-poster). It’s a stunning portrait of what can be achieved by a few, extremely dedicated people for the benefit of so many.

Adaptable Infographic for Parent Centers to Use | This infographic is designed so you can insert just your Center’s numbers, data results, and branding into key blocks of information. Adapt the PowerPoint file, and shine the spotlight on the work of your Center!

Quick Guide to Adapting the Infographic | This 2-page guide shows you where to insert your Center-specific information, just in case having such a “checklist” would be helpful.


At a Glance: ED’s “Reopening Schools” Handbooks

For busy folks integral to the business of reopening schools for our children’s in-person learning, ED’s two handbooks are a treasure trove of strategies and guidance. They are well worth reading in their entirety, but perhaps a quick-start summary of key points would be helpful?

We offer you two infographics, one for each of ED’s volumes, and share where to download the volumes themselves, at:
