Welcome to Sacramento Parents
Advocating for Student Success!
Sacramento PASS

Sacramento PASS is a parent-led school and community project that connects, supports and empowers parent advocates who have children in Sacramento City Unified School District schools to ensure student achievement, mental health and well-being, and education equity throughout the district.


We use the term parent broadly to refer to positive, caring adults in the lives of students inclusive of:

  • Parents
  • Caregivers
  • Extended family members
  • Guardians

Sacramento PASS works to deploy trained and supported parents on school campuses to:

  • Increase and facilitate parent engagement
  • Prioritize parent concerns related to their child’s education
  • Collectively advocate for solutions to improve student achievement, and
  • Ensure the healthy social and emotional development of all children.
Community partners, funders and parents developed the project based on research and several frameworks of practice to inform its design and implementation – see the Resources section below.

Our collective goal is to create more timely, equitable and effective responses to educational challenges at the school district and school sites.

Coming Soon: Parent Forums for SCUSD Families

Sacramento PASS will offer a series of virtual parent forums to be scheduled in June. These forums are meant to provide an opportunity for open and collaborative dialogue where parents can share their ideas for areas of improvement that students need to be successful when returning to campus in the fall.

Community partner Valley Vision is organizing these virtual parent forums and will announce dates soon. We invite you to offer input about your student’s educational experience with SCUSD this past year.
