Parent Advisory Committee 2020/2021

Dear Beard Families,
If you have a child that is enrolled at Beard School, then you and your family members are invited and welcome to join the Beard Parent Advisory Council, also known as the PAC.  Beard School will be having PAC meetings virtually this year.  Dates and times of when this council will be meeting will be posted on the calendar of events page on the front of the school website.  A link will be provided on class dojo's general announcements page.  All members of your family are welcome to attend.  

What is the Parent Advisory Council?
The PAC is a council that provides advice to the Principal on how to spend annual Title 1 mandated parent funds.  Last year, funds were used to purchase a parent training program in social emotional learning with Kristen Houvious of SEL Chicago.  When in person learning resumes, the PAC will volunteer to support scheduled student and parent engagement events and create opportunities for parents to engage with one another outside of the school setting.  The Parent Advisory Council elects officers to be on the PAC.  These officers are required to attend PAC training events with the Network.  Once these officers are selected, we will publish there names and emails here on this page.
