Connecting with School-based and District-level Groups

Here is a list of school-based and district-level groups you and your children can join to keep you close to your school communities and empower you to help make decisions about the direction of your children’s education and school life. 

  • Parent Teacher Association (PTA) is the official organization of the parent body in a school and can support schools with parent engagement and school enrichment. 

  • School Leadership Team. The School Leadership Team (SLT) is a group of people who develop educational policies for their school. A key role for SLT’s is to develop the School Comprehensive Educational Plan (CEP),

  • Title I Parent Advisory Councils (PACs). All DOE schools classified as Title I programs under the federal Every Student Succeeds Acts are required to establish a Title I Parent Advisory Council (PAC) that will serve as the consultative and representative body to involve and engage all Title I parents of participating students in the Title I program.

  • District 13 Community Education Council. Meetings and more information can be found here:
