Parent Advisory Committee (PAC)
The Parent Advisory Committee (PAC) is a committee of American Indian/Alaska Native (AIAN) parents, families, students, teachers and community, entrusted to promote the local American Indian community.
We are dedicated to supporting quality education that is accessible to AIAN students and families within San Juan Unified School District and that empowers students to achieve academic success that honors culture, traditional languages, and values.
The PAC does this by providing academic support; promoting post-secondary opportunities; culturally specific activities; advocacy and resources that enhance the delivery of culturally competent education.
The Parent Advisory Committee acts to advise, monitor and evaluate the American Indian Education Program in collaboration with program staff.
The majority of the Parent Advisory Committee consists of parents of American Indian/Alaska Native students enrolled in SJUSD. There is also a high school student position, a teacher or counselor position, and an elder/alumni position. Members are elected each year by parents and high school students of the SJUSD American Indian/Alaska Native community. To view a copy of the By-Laws click this link: By Laws 2009.
Committee meetings are held in the evening during the school year on agreed-upon dates.
