The Parent Advisory Council (PAC) was formed by Chicago Public Schools to provide parents/legal guardians, teachers/staff, and community individuals with the opportunity to work with their principal in the planning, design, implementation, and evaluation of the Title I Program.
The primary goal of the PAC is to empower parents to inspire and assist their children in achieving educational goals, including, but not limited to, graduating from high school.
Parent Advisory Councils:
provide training opportunities for parents to improve their literacy and parenting skills
work to create equal partnerships between teachers, staff, and parents in the education of students
give information to parents that will enable them to work with the school to promote their child(ren)’s grade level progress and academic achievements
allow parents to be involved in revising the school’s parent involvement policy and provide input to the school’s CIWP programs
