Parent Advisory Council
In keeping with the mission of Brooks DeBartolo Collegiate High School, the Parent Advisory Council takes an active role in fostering a collaborative relationship among students’ families, teachers and administrators. The PAC partners with the leadership of the school to ensure that BDCHS has an open line of communication with parents and to foster parental support in the areas of active volunteerism and fundraising for BDCHS.
The PAC strives to have its leadership and membership model the diversity of the student body. All parents and guardians of BDCHS are members of the PAC and are eligible to run for a formal position within the PAC.
PAC meetings are calendared and provide parents the opportunity to gain a deeper understanding of the school, its mission and how parents/guardians can support the school for the ultimate success of all students.
