The Former Pittsfield Public School's Parent Child Home Program

The Former Pittsfield Public School's Parent Child Home Program A Proven Beginning for School Success in Pittsfield, Ma from 1970 to 2015.
(10)

For 45 years, Pittsfield Public Schools, using Title I and state CFCE funds, offered the Parent-Child Home Program to eligible Pittsfield families. Over the years, several longevity studies proved that results of this program were effective and long lasting. Pittsfield's research was used by programs across the United States to receive funding to replicate the Pittsfield PCHP. The premise of this program is simple. Parents are the first and most important teachers of their children. PCHP gives parents the tools and skills needed to start their child on the path to a successful education. Sadly, Pittsfield Public Schools made the choice to cease funding its PCHP in the spring of 2015. However, the spirit of this program lives on and we have decided to continue with our page, where we will continue to post free or low cost activities the families of Berkshire County.
