District Advisory Council
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.
DAC Membership and Representative Forms
The District Advisory Council (DAC) meets monthly to learn about and advise on district strategies and programs impacting families, particularly related to Title I. All school leaders must identify two representatives that are family members of students in their school to the DAC. All delegates are able to serve for two school years ending in June of the second year, regardless of starting month. The DAC recognizes the most recent representative form submitted by a school leader for which family members are currently serving on the DAC. Additionally, schools may select up to two official alternate members to serve. Alternate, members are encouraged to attend all meetings and participate in discussions. However, alternate members may only vote when one of the school’s official representatives is not in attendance.
The following forms should be completed and signed by the School Leader and sent to email@example.com or dropped off in room 131 at Central Office.
