United Parent Council



Paradise Valley United Parent Council is a district-wide parent group that has been active in Paradise Valley Unified School District for more than 30 years and is a 501(c)(3) organization. Looking out for the interest of students is our primary goal. We do this by offering parents support, information, and opportunities to be influential voices in the decisions that affect their children's education. This web site is one way we communicate with you and we invite you to visit our site often to get the information you seek.


  • To provide a forum for the exchange of ideas and problem-solving techniques among the parents of the various schools on education issues so that all might benefit from each other's experience.
  • To inform and update parents on current issues and happenings in the field, sensitizing them to areas in need of attention.
  • To provide leadership and representation for district parents so that they might unite and work together toward common goals more effectively and have an influential voice in the decision-making processes affecting their children.
  • To maintain open relationships with teachers, the school board, and school administration in order to accomplish these purposes while maintaining UPC's own autonomy.
