Parth was born and raised in India.  After receiving his Bachelor’s in India, an unwavering belief in the American dream brought him to the United States. He earned his Doctorate in Chemical & Petroleum Engineering at the University of Wyoming in Laramie, where he met his future wife, Rebecca.  

Parth and Rebecca love everything Colorado Springs has to offer and call this community their home for the last 25 years.  Their daughter will be attending a District 11 High School this upcoming academic year.


Growing up in India, Parth was blessed with loving, devoted parents. Despite struggling to pay bills and put food on the table, they instilled in him a love and appreciation for the importance of education.  

Having benefitted from the blessings of positive parental engagement in his own upbringing and education, Parth understands the importance of family and school partnership in the realization of a child’s full academic potential.  He served in various leadership roles on the School Accountability Committee (SAC) and Parent Teacher Association (PTA) at his daughter’s school, advocating for smaller class sizes.  


As he learned more about the challenges to deliver high-quality education to every student, Parth believed change was needed and that he could make a difference in the district.  He joined the District Accountability Committee (DAC) in 2016, and went on to serve as its Chairman from 2017 to 2019.


In 2019, Parth was elected to his first term on the District 11 School Board of Education. He immediately began fighting for Student Success, Staff Investment, and Parent Engagement. As the Treasurer of the School Board from 2019 to 2021, he promoted transparency and responsible stewardship by investing taxpayer’s dollars closest to students in the classrooms.

In 2021, he was elected President of the Board. Coming out of the pandemic, Parth supported a safe return of students to classrooms without restrictions. Under his collaborative leadership, clear board priorities were established, fostering a culture of excellence, high expectations, and accountability.

Working with the Board, he spearheaded numerous systemic changes to “put students first” and oversaw significant improvements in student success – as D11 went from the 158th rated district in the state to the 79th in a little over a year.


Parth strongly believes that education is the great equalizer that opens the doors of opportunity and success for our children and future generations. Having appreciated the benefits and blessings of a well-rounded education in his personal life, Parth’s mission is to ensure Excellence in Education for ALL.

After years of declining student enrollment and achievement, clear governance and intentional strategies focused on students have positioned District 11 for continuous growth and success. Parth will continue to fight for students, staff, and parents, as we collectively lean in to pursue excellence and success at all levels. Our students deserve nothing less!
