Principal's Advisory Council
What is the Principal's Advisory Council (PAC)?
The PAC is composed of a principal, teachers, other school personnel, parents, and community members. It is intended to be an advisory board that represents all stakeholders of the school community to the principal. The primary responsibility is to support and advise the principal in implementing the district’s strategic plan. The key to a successful PAC depends upon a good working relationship among all members of the Council. Each member of the Council shares their unique perspective and knowledge of the school’s needs, as they affect all students, during PAC meetings.
The principal and teachers contribute background knowledge in instructional practices; all members provide insights on how effectively the school is working toward achieving its goals. At the secondary level, students offer insight into the range and effectiveness of learning opportunities available. Other personnel at the school, such as counselors, instructional aides, and clerical staff can share insights on how the school can function to support goals.
