Parent Advisory Committee:
The district wide Parent Advisory Committee(PAC) is a group formed to help ensure that parents are involved and informed about programs and policies in the school district. Each Title 1 school is required to have parent/guardian representatives for the committee. The meetings are led by York Powers, Family & Community Coordinator. The meetings are an opportunity for parents to discuss new policies and programs in the school district, as well as collaborate and help develop new programs to help increase parental involvement at the school and district level.
We are looking to utilize the Parent University model to adhere to the voices and needs of our students, families, and community. With survey results from our families it was made evident that for this venture to be a success we will need the help of our great community, which includes you. Peoria Public Schools District 150 is looking to provide the opportunity for families to get a wide variety of resources; job skill training, parenting classes, technology training, health classes, social service resources, adult education, how to help student achievement, college preparation, and navigating the modern school system.This new initiative is free to all that are interested. There will be hubs throughout the district that the Parent Universities will be conducted.
