About the Ohio's State Superintendent's Parent Advisory Council

Parents play an important role in educating Ohio’s children. The Ohio Department of Education (ODE) formed the State Superintendent's Parent Advisory Council in 2002 to provide a much needed connection among parents, their children and ODE.

Council members work to increase parent and family involvement in education through effective communication, while empowering and advocating for all families. Council members attend regular meetings to learn about what is happening in education in Ohio. They provide feedback on new ODE policies, products and materials for families and share what they learn with local families and community organizations.

The Superintendent's Parent Advisory Council is a nonpartisan organization that does not represent special interest groups. Council members meet in Columbus.
