Principal Advisory Council


What We Do: 

The purpose of the Principal Advisory Council (PAC) is to bring parents, school employees, and community members together to create a better understanding of and mutual respect for each other's perspectives and share ideas for increasing student achievement and performance. The Council meets 5 times each academic year and is concerned with matters of student achievement and school improvement.

The members of the Principal Advisory Council are accountable to the constituents they serve and shall:


  • Maintain a school-wide perspective on issues;

  • Act as a link between the school and the community;

  • Encourage the engagement of parents and other stakeholders within the school community; and

  • Work to increase student achievement and performance through transparent operations and shared best practices.


The Principal Advisory Council operates under the control and management of the DeKalb County School District and will follow Board of Education policies and procedures. The Principal Advisory Council provides advice and recommendations to the school principal, the local board of education and local school superintendent on matters related to school climate/culture, student achievement, and community partnerships.
