    Seattle Public Schools is seeking members for the Superintendent's Parent Advisory Council (PAC). Our primary task is to build systemic capacity at each school to facilitate strong family engagement to support student learning. This group will gather parent and guardian leaders who will help co-design systems that support school-based engagement.

    The application was open from October 22 - November 12, 2020. Selected PAC members will be notified by November 20.

    Council Purpose and Member Commitment

    The PAC, which is open to current SPS parents and guardians, reviews our annual district family engagement plan and advises Superintendent Juneau on family engagement. Through the council, you can help foster continued alignment and innovation for our district's family engagement priorities.

    Seattle Public Schools district values and recognizes that authentic family engagement is fundamental to ensuring student academic success, improving school culture, and creating welcoming environments. We are committed to working with families to ensure that every student is known by strength, story and need. Families, community partners, and school communities partnered with us to create a strategic plan that prioritizes family engagement and racial equity. As a result, policy 4129PDF icon and procedure 4129SPPDF icon were adopted to guide our school-based family engagement practices.
