Parent Advisory Councils (PACs) empower parents to serve as partners in the education of their children at schools that receive Title 1 funding. Each academic year, schools establish Parent Advisory Councils (PACs) to bring together parents/legal guardians, teachers/staff, and community stakeholders to work with their school principal in the planning, design, implementation, and evaluation of the Title I Program. PACs empower parents to inspire and assist their children in achieving educational goals and graduating from elementary and high school. PAC meeting activities include:
Provide input on amendments and future Title I programs
Advise the principal on how Title 1 parent engagement funds should be spent in alignment with the school's Continuous Improvement Work Plan (CIWP)
Jointly develop and approve a parent involvement policy which includes a school-parent compact
Share ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act) Title I information updates received from the New Region PAC
Provide assistance, support, and training to parents to improve their literacy and parent skills
Work to create equal partnerships between teachers, staff, and parents in the education of students
Provide information to parents that will enable them to work with the school to promote their children’s grade level progress
PACs meet monthly through the school year. Meetings are open to the public. For information about your school's PAC meeting schedule, please contact Amalfi Duran.
