Parent Advisory Council (PAC)

Our Parent Advisory Council is made up by parents and guardians with common interests. Their desire is to maintain an active parent community and help launch a parent culture that impacts our students' education, as well as help to inspire a positive school culture. This parent group aims to meet regularly to plan and host actions/activities to achieve the goals they have created.

What does the PAC "do"?

  1. The PAC advocates for parents and their interests in the school. 
  2. The PAC manages the money given through Title I (1% of Title I budget), which comes from the Every Student Succeeds Act. 
  3. The PAC uses this money to help parents help students succeed. Examples include:
    • Parent Training (to increase capacity to support child’s learning)
    • Childcare Or Travel Reimbursement
    • Parent-dedicated furniture or equipment (copier, printer, tables, chairs, storage, translation devices)
    • Parent Conferences (connected to classroom)
    • Field Trips directly connected to classroom curriculum
    • ESL classes
    • SEL (Socio-Emotional Learning) workshops (related to student learning)
    • Books & Materials (in compliance) Read along books,
      lending libraries
