As a new school year begins, I am seeking school district nominations for parents to serve on the 2022 State School Superintendent’s Parent Advisory Council (PAC).
The Superintendent’s PAC will meet three times each school year with a focus on parent and family engagement, as described in the federal law, the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA). Members will serve as advisors and will provide input on family and community engagement resources. Please keep in mind that the PAC is an advisory group and not a parent leadership training program. Each PAC member selected will serve a two-year term on the PAC. The nominated parent must meet the following eligibility criteria:
Be the parent of a child enrolled in a Title I school. “Parent” is defined as a grandparent, foster parent, aunt, uncle, legal guardian, or any other adult who serves as a primary caregiver of a student.
Commit to attend all PAC meetings held throughout the length of the two-year term.
The three PAC meetings this school year are scheduled tentatively for Monday, October 18, 2021, Monday, January 10, 2022 and Monday, April 11, 2022, subject to change. The meetings will take place via Microsoft Teams from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm each scheduled meeting day.
