Special Education : Parent Advisory Committee

Northside Independent School District values the partnerships it has built with parents and the community. The Parent Advisory Committee (PAC) advises the special education directors on issues related to special education programs as authorized by state and federal law. The PAC is comprised of parents of students in special education programs. The PAC organizes activities on current parent-oriented topics, develops the parent handbook, and lobbies various legislative or political bodies, acts as liaisons to community or other parents, and other tasks which may be determined by current committee. Northside Independent School District Special Education Department welcomes visitors to this informative resource.
