State Parent Advisory Council

The Pennsylvania Department of Education (PDE) created the Title I State Parent Advisory Council (SPAC) in 1990. SPAC includes parents of children participating in Title I. The purpose of this council is to share ideas with the Division of Federal Programs about involving Title I parents to increase student achievement. SPAC parents advise PDE on many aspects of Parent and Family Engagement – from working with children at home to developing partnerships among parents, teachers, administrators, and community leaders to create effective and engaging parent involvement programs.

The SPAC website has information about the Council as well as links to parent resources. Franklin Regional School District tries to send some Title I parents to the SPAC conference annually, funds permitting.

If you are interested in learning more about SPAC, check out their website link on this page or ask your child’s Title I teacher, principal, or the Assistant Superintendent.
