  • African American Parent Coucil

    he African-American Parent Council (AAPC) is a coalition of parents, students, schools, and communities that honors and embraces the identity and experiences of PUSD’s African-American families, advocates for the cultural acceptance of all, and mobilizes and engages all stakeholders to transform the system to ensure a high quality education for every student. 

    Meetings are generally held on the 4th Thursday of the month.

    English Learner Advisory Committee (ELAC)

    The English Learner Advisory Committee addresses issues specifically related to English Learners and advises the principal, the school staff, and the School Site Council (SSC) on programs and services for English Learners to assure the needs of EL students are being met. Each school with 21 or more English Learners is required to have an ELAC. The percentage of EL parents on the committee must match the percentage of EL students at the school. Parents of non-EL students may also be on this committee.

    The committee will review English Learner data and programs. They also will make recommendations to the principal, school staff and the SSC.

    Typically, ELAC meets on the last Tuesday of the month.

    School Site Council

    Schools that receive categorical funding from the state or federal government are required to elect a School Site Council (SSC), a decision-making body responsible for developing and recommending to the School Board a "Single Plan for Student Achievement" for that particular school site. 

    Composed 50% of staff (including the principal, classroom teachers, and other school personnel), and 50% non-staff (including parents or other community members selected by parents), the SSC monitors implementation of the Single Plan, and evaluates the results. 

    The SSC is required to consider recommendations from other school advisory committees such as ELAC on the needs of students and on ways those needs could be met.

    Typically, the School Site Council meets once a month on 1st Tuesday.

    Organizational PTA

    Meets on the 2nd Wednesday of the month
