From the desk of Crystal Hawkins:

Subject: Please Nominate a Parent Leader for the District Parent Advisory Council (PAC)

Don’t miss out on the opportunity to build a strong Family Engagement Team at your school! Encourage a few parents at your school to apply for the Parent Advisory Council (PAC) by sharing this link with them to apply online,, or by giving them the attached application. We are eliminating barriers for parents to participate by providing a meal, childcare, and language interpretation if needed. PAC members can choose to attend monthly meetings on Monday evenings or Friday mornings, based on which option is best for them. They will also receive a monthly stipend of $75 when they complete assignments. Deadline to apply is September 30th.

Why is this important to you as a school administrator? It is critical to have informed parents as part of your team to implement effective family engagement strategies focused on student achievement. To help with that effort, we are intentionally integrating the training that parents on the Parent Advisory Council (PAC) receive with the training that your school’s Parent Engagement Lead is receiving. This will help to create a positive school climate around family engagement as well as maintain compliance with all Title 1 documentation. If you or your parents have questions, please contact Chrystal Hawkins at, 502-485-6285.
