Parent Advisory Committee

Glen Lake's Parent Advisory Committee

The Parent Advisory Committee (PAC) is comprised of a group of K-12 parents, Elementary and Secondary Principals, Superintendent, and two School Board Members who explore, advocate and work to understand the difficult and complex situations facing the school district in a setting away from the formal board meetings, staff meetings or other administrative gatherings. The children, their education and well-being is the focus for these discussions

Each K-12 grade is represented by a parent of a student in that grade who is not a current or past employee, board member, spouse or relative of a Glen Lake employee. Members must be willing to attend monthly meetings from 6-7:15 the second Monday of each month of the school year beginning in October.

Guiding Principles:

PAC is an advisory committee to the board and administration and provides a verbal update at the school board meeting on a rotating basis.

PAC Members are volunteers. Once a person becomes a member, they are encouraged to continue as their child advances in the school. Any grade level openings will be posted on the GLCS website and in the District Newsletter. Please contact the PAC chair if you are interested in becoming a member.

PAC members will serve as ambassadors to the community and other parents in regard to the issues at hand.

PAC members may be used as a sounding board for our administration about ideas and concepts that are explored in areas including school curriculum changes, school finance, discipline and safety, legislative issues and actions.

PAC will engage in healthy, open dialogue about issues that the district faces. It is expected this dialogue will increase the understanding of the variables and complexities associated with topics and will assist parents, board representatives, and administrators to view the problem in a broader school context.

Both results and proposed changes should be discussed by PAC. Issues regarding specific persons or their actions need to be discussed in a private setting.

Meeting Schedule:

  • Every second Monday of the month (same as regular BOE meetings) Starting with October and going through May.
  • 6:00 P.M. to 6:45 P.M.
