Parental involvement is a core tenet of the Mayor’s and the Chancellor’s Children First Reform
Agenda. As part of Children First, each school is allocated supplemental resources to establish a
parent coordinator position. The coordinator serves to involve parents in their child’s learning and
life in school and responds to parent concerns. Schools are allocated personnel and other than
personnel (OTPS) funds, as detailed in the attached table.
Due to this year’s stable budget condition, principals of schools covering only grades 9-12 can no
longer choose to excess a parent coordinator. Parent coordinators are mandated for all schools.
