Committees to Serve On

  • Families have the opportunity to provide input and engage with district administration in a variety of ways. The following are committees families can serve on:

    The Parent Advisory Committee (PAC) was formed to advise and provide support to the Community Schools Team and building Administration in order to implement family and community engagement efforts and events and school culture in support of student learning.
