About PUPC

The Peoria United Parent Council (PUPC) is a district-wide parent group organized to offer parents opportunities to be influential voices in the decisions that affect our children’s education.

In addition to having a voice and representing schools on critical issues, parent members will gain greater access to district administrators, knowledge about state-level legislative and educational issues, and opportunities to be more involved at both levels.

The purpose of the Peoria United Parent Council is to:

  • Engage the influential voices of PUSD’s parents
  • Help to inform parents on educational issues
  • Bring parents, parent groups, district administrators and community leaders together

Some highlights of the work accomplished by PUPC to date include the following:


  • Proudly served as a Co-Sponsor for the 2019 West Valley Education Forum
