Parent Advisory Committee PAC

Rochester Community Schools Parent Advisory Committee (PAC) was formed to strengthen relationships between parents of students with disabilities and the special education community. PAC was organized to ensure the finest special education programs and services are available for the students in Rochester Community Schools. The PAC meets monthly with the Director of Special Education and/or supervisors to discuss issues relative to the Special Education Department. Each school in Rochester Community Schools has two representatives on the committee. Early Intervention, Preschool, Post-secondary, and Out-of District programs are also represented.
