Spread the Word: Applications now open for the District Advisory Council

Posted by School District of Philadelphia on March 26, 2019

The School District of Philadelphia strongly believes in the value of family engagement and that parents/guardians are a “valuable link” in the educational success of all students. Active family engagement helps to ensure that the unique needs of the District’s various school communities are served through positive collaboration between school leaders and members of the community.

The District seeks to establish a District Advisory Council (DAC) as a formal way to include parent/guardian perspectives and recommendations in the District’s decision-making process.

Families can Submit Applications until Wednesday, April 10 at 4:30 pm.

The objectives of the DAC are to:
  • (a) increase family participation in decision making;
  • (b) establish a network of community resources;
  • (c) foster collaboration between families and school/district staff;
  • (d) equip families with tools to enhance and extend learning; and
  • (e) evaluate family engagement efforts and use evaluations for continuous improvement.
