The Director's Parent Advisory Council (PAC) is comprised of two representatives from each of the 120 schools within MNPS. PAC meets as a collective body of 240 representatives every other month with the Director of Schools and other MNPS administrators to discuss district wide concerns. The alternate months are dedicated to individual cluster meetings (see the twelve geographical clusters ) in which the clusters meet to discuss cluster concerns and have training and development sessions.
Please see the monthly calendar for times and locations of the meetings. For more information or to become involved please contact your school principal, family school liaison or parent representative.
- To energize, organize, and mobilize parents to be involved in the lifelong education of their children
- To identify barriers to parental involvement and work with Metro Schools personnel to reduce or remove these barriers
- To make these actions ongoing through structured committees, meeting regularly, and reporting to the Director’s PAC and Metro Schools on a frequent basis
Representatives to the Director’s Parents Advisory Council (PAC) elected leaders for the 2013-14 school year: Chair Chelle Baldwin; Vice-Chair Daynise Couch and Secretary Haley Dale. MNPS thanks outgoing officers Erica Lanier, Michael Hasty, and Scott Eddins. Learn more about nominations and voting.

FULL MEETING RECAP: CHANGES COME TO ELEMENTARY, MIDDLE, & HIGH
The first full PAC meeting of the school year was a huge success. We had one of the biggest turn-outs ever for a PAC meeting and heard three remarkable presentations from the senior leaders of elementary, middle, and high schools. If you couldn't make it to the meeting, a live-blog of the event and all three presentations are available in the links below.
