The Parent Advisory Council (PAC) is made up of a parent representative from each grade level, the principal, two teachers, our instructional lead teacher and the parent outreach facilitator. The PAC meets at least three times a year and gives input and direction for the Title I program including the school compact, the school policy for parent involvement, and the parent workshops. ALL parents at North Douglas Elementary are invited and encouraged to attend and participate in all PAC meetings. The meetings will be advertised on the school website, on signage, and through flyers. The dates for the PAC meetings for 2016-2017 are listed below.
