The purpose of school governance councils is to provide a forum for parents, teachers, community members, students, and principals to work together in providing continued analysis and improvement of public school policies, educational plan goals, and general student well-being. The council shall also be a clearinghouse for information collected from outside organizations, including student groups, parent-teacher groups, teacher associations, etc. The council’s decision-making authority is advisory with respect to all duties, powers, and responsibilities, with the sole exception of the council’s authority and responsibility to submit a cover letter setting forth its agreement or disagreement with the school’s annual budget and the school’s annual educational plan.

Milwaukee Public Schools established the District Advisory Council (DAC) to ensure that parents of all students have an opportunity to share their ideas about the needs of children, assist in the planning and operation of Title I programs for children and participate in evaluating the success of Title I efforts. Today, the DAC is a diverse group of families committed to lending their voice on current issues faced by Milwaukee Public Schools.
