 Superintendent's Parent Advisory Council

The Superintendent's Parent Advisory Council

​What is a Parent Advisory Council (PAC)?

The State School Superintendent’s Parent Advisory Council is a group of parents from across the state that provides input on new policies, projects, and materials that impact students and their families. Advisory Council members are particularly focused on how to increase parent and family engagement to ensure student academic success. Members serve as advisors and meet with the State School Superintendent several times throughout their two-year term.

Who Serves on the PAC?

There are approximately 31 PAC members whose participation is staggered in two-year terms. In addition to the PAC members, the winners of the annual Parent Leadership Awards​​ are invited to be honorary PAC members for one year. To include community partnerships, there are six community organizations selected to participate on the PAC.

How Are Parents Nominated to Serve on the PAC?

Parents are nominated to serve on the PAC by their local school districts at the beginning of each school year. A principal of a Georgia Title I school may nominate a parent to represent the school and the district. Only one nomination per school district is accepted. PAC members are chosen based on their capacity to lead, current levels of involvement in their child's school, and responses to application questions.
