Originally established as the California Parent Center in 1999, it functioned as a federally funded Parent Information and Resource Center (PIRC) until 2004 when it became a statewide technical assistance center for school-family-community partnerships.

In 2012 the California Parent Center joined the Center for, Family, School, Community Engagement.
