Parent Advisory Council

VISION: The Barrow County School System Parent Advisory Council (PAC) is an inclusive group of parents/guardians and community members who work together to advocate for the voices of our families and staff members to create positive change within our schools.

MISSION: The BCSS PAC is dedicated to ensuring all voices in the Barrow County School System and community are heard, respected and investigated. Our goal is to break down racial, socio-economic, and societal divides that are affecting our community by working together to improve communication, curriculum, and procedures within the district through brainstorming solutions. By representing all BCSS families, it is our responsibility to engage with others in our community on a consistent basis to ensure that we can collectively identify the pulse of our stakeholders. We will work diligently to support our school district in its vision to being Boldly Committed to Student Success.

Want to Join the Parent Advisory Council?

Parent Advisory Council members will need to participate in each of the four scheduled meetings. Meetings scheduled on the same day share the same agenda, therefore, PAC members only need to attend either the 8:30 a.m. meeting or the 5:30 p.m. meeting. During these meetings, members will provide input and feedback on District and School Family Engagement matters, such as activities, plans and policies, etc.

The 2023-2024 Meeting Dates are:
  • Wednesday, Nov. 1
    8:30 am (in-person) and/or 5:30 pm (virtual)
  • Thursday, Dec. 14
