There are four standing committees of SPC: 1) Programming 2) Outreach 3) Communications and 4) Advocacy.

SPC helps every student by empowering families with informative and educational programming, filling in the gaps of communication, and by facilitating a network of volunteers: parents, families, business owners, neighbors and friends who unite through our mission.
