School districts receiving Economic Impact Aid (EIA)/State Compensatory Education (SCE) are required to establish a District Advisory Council (DAC) for the purpose of advising districts and schools regarding compensatory education programs. The DAC shall include broad representation of the parent population served by this district or school. Parent representatives are to be elected by the parents of pupils participating in a program of compensatory education residing in the district and shall constitute a majority of the membership. DAC responsibilities may include but are not limited to reviewing district goals and objectives, reviewing the district’s consolidated applications that support school site improvements, identifying ways to strengthen parent/guardian involvement, and analyzing school data to provide recommendations on how to improve student programs. Please contact your school site principal for more information.
