District Parent Advisory Council (DPAC)

The District Parent Advisory Council (DPAC) meetings are an excellent opportunity for regular dialogue with the Superintendent (or designee) and district staff. Six diverse representatives from each of the three Area Parent Advisory Councils and one member from the Special Education Advisory Council comprise the membership of DPAC; however, all parents or guardians are welcome to attend the meetings.


Area A (Zone 1) Parent Advisory Council

The Area A (Zone 1) Parent Advisory Council is committed to seeing our children and community thrive. We look forward to meeting new parents and community members and working together to improve our schools. All Area A parents, community members and organizations are welcome and encouraged to join us. We want all voices at the table and we are seeking diverse representation on the council.
