Parent Club Information Council (PCIC)

  • What is PCIC?

    The Livermore Valley Joint Unified School District's Parent Club Information Council (PCIC) provides a forum for parent leaders and the district superintendent to exchange and share information, ideas and resources. The primary purpose of PCIC is to augment communication between parent clubs, school sites, district staff and the community while moving forward district goals. PCIC is comprised of one parent representative from each school site along with community groups and associations directly related to our schools. Regular attendees from district leadership include our Superintendent, Assistant Superintendent of Educational Services, and Director of Community Engagement. Community partners that attend include The Livermore Public Library, Livermore Valley Education Foundation, ESS Program, Granada Supporters, Pedrozzi Foundation and a school board representative.
